Basement has been framed but here is what I'm looking at. I have a 2x6 exterior wall that has a 38" cinder block half wall protruding 1 1/2" from the framed wall above it. I framed that out for a 5" shelf to come down the line.
The area above that wall to upstairs floor is 84" and has been insulated with a vapor barrier by builder. I will need to install blocking on the front side of those 2x6s parallel to the ceiling joists to fasten ceiling rock to.
Does that area behind that 2x4 blocking need to have fire block? 2x6s installed into each bay parallel to the 2x4 blocking?
