Im getting ready to re-frame basement walls after basement flood (shocking images attached).
I'll be doing this for every wall portion that can possibly flood:
1) ridgid XPS foam insulation against side wall concrete
2) Pressure treated wood frame
3) cementboard + stucco finish (lime plaster) (instead of drywall+joint compound) -> as that survives standing water.
Now - as you can see from these pictures - house has drain tile around internal perimeter... and from what it looks like - existing rotten wall just sits on top of the pebbles....
Question - should I cover those pebbles with concrete prior to doing any framing?
