I know the title screams "stop now" for many of you, but my hope is that there is a good solution to my little problem.
For the past 6 months I've been working on building a room in half of my basement. This basement has never seen water and is quite dry. Further, this basement is part of a shared condo which has a common wall. I have all my framing, electrical and most of the drywall hung. As we near the finish of hanging drywall, I'm burdened with the task of figuring out to do with the shared wall going up the stairway.
I apologize for the picture size, but here's that shared wall:
The bare cinder block is what I'm referring to. See, the problem is that we can't frame that wall without having problems with overlapping the stairs going up to the first level. The idea offered to me was to use industrial glue between the drywall and cement blocks. I don't have to worry about moisture getting behind the wall because it's not an exterior wall.
My question for those of you who care to offer advice is what would be the best way to get the drywall on that bare wall without framing?
Here are some options I've thought of:
1. Use the glue I purchased on top of using cement screws.
2. Stucco the wall instead of drywalling.
Any advice here is greatly appreciated!
