    John,

    I was wondering if there was a way to frame walls on the flat for areas such as a basement.

    sorry, walls on the flat? what does that mean? Walls are vertical only, but can do rectangular, gable or shed.

    No problem. As an example, a 2×4 framed wall against a poured basement wall. Sometimes they’re drawn as a standard depth wall gaped off the foundation wall by 1/2″ and other times the studs are turned on edge so the 1-1/2″ dimension of the stud is the depth of the wall (instead of the 3-1/2″), plus the 1/2″ gap for airspace or rigid insulation.

    Hope that makes more sense.

    I routinely use Framer to model 2×4 walls against foundation walls, with 1/2″ gap. I usually use guides to help with the gap. Further, I use single top plates as well. Works well – have not tried a furring wall turning studs (I normally keep them full depth for insulation), but will test it

    Thanks. Look forward to hearing if it works.

    Russell,

    I created a stud section for a 4×2 (3-1/2×1-1/2) and it worked great for modeling a furred wall – see pic.
