Basement Stairs & Framing

After the kitchen & attic windows, we tackled the basement stairs next, also from Igloo Building Supplies; they popped in nicely. Basement framing followed and went in quickly. There was nearly 1.5" variation on the basement slab height, which made framing a pain. We plan to add 1" HI-40 foam, and then 1" thick Roth panel onto that, which is a 100psi foam with aluminium top that contains 1/2" pex tubing channels. Knowing this, we framed the top plates flush to the joists, and shimmed the bottom plates.
