Can you install foam insulation boards after framing a basement?
Hi hope everyone is doing well. I have been driving myself crazy with trying to figure out how I’m going to insulate and frame my basement walls. I have some pex plumbing and electrical attached directly to 2 of my concrete foundation walls. I want to hire an electrician and plumber to rewire basement and place pex through a framed wall I’m going to build in front of the foundation wall. Problem right now is that in order to get insulation board attached directly to wall I would have to remove all the wiring and plumbing. Is it possible to frame walls, have the electrician and plumber do their work and then slide the insulation boards behind the framing? Or do I have to move plumbing and wiring, then have them come back and do it again when I finish framing?
