Good Afternoon Everyone, I apologize if this is the wrong forum, since this involves multiple topics (concrete, framing, etc.) I figured it was best placed here. Move as necessary. I am a relatively new homeowner, and I am embarking on a likely multi-year project to re-finish my basement. I bought the home from a refurbisher, and he had ripped out most of the dated finish work in the basement. However, he left the existing framing (from the 70s), which is shoddy at best, and has some water-related rot. I have at least one area where there is water coming in from behind the framing on an outer wall. It seems like the best bet is to just tear it all out, do the concrete repairs, and start from scratch to do it correctly. However, after close examination, I've discovered at least a couple roadblocks that leave me with questions. Your advise is welcome and appreciated. I have included several pictures. 1. The outer wall framing appears to be anchored to the concrete walls with rather large flathead fasteners. How much trouble am I asking for in trying to remove these? 2. The basement is a daylight basement. The rear wall is half concrete, and half lumber. The internal framing is ripped 2x4s attached to the structural framing. How can I safely remove the inner framing without damaging the structural framing? Thanks!
