I had a french drain / water management system in my basement to deal with leaky walls, and as part of the installation the contractor had to cut in around my foundation. To give themselves room to jackhammer, they cut the bottom 6-8" off of the walls all the way around one side of the basement.
Now I'm left with 3 non-load bearing walls that are essentially just hanging from the ceiling. I'd like repair the walls, but I'm looking for some advice. I was looking to put down a new pressure treated 2x4 across the floor, then add 2x4 to extend the studs down to the floor again.
Frankly, I was pretty surprised by the whole thing, so I'm happy to hear suggestions how to fix this mess. Attached is a picture in case I'm not clear.
