Horizontal furring to break thermal bridging on wall studs?
I am about to hang drywall in my remodeled garage conversion. I’ve already had open cell foam sprayed to fill the 2×4 wall cavities. (I’m in TN, zone 4.) I’ve been reading about Mooney walls, and I’m sorry I learned all that AFTER the spray foam installation. My question is, would it be worthwhile to add a layer of horizontal furring before hanging the drywall, just to break the thermal bridging of the studs? I am considering using 1×2 furring to minimize cost, and it’s a (mostly) DIY so I’m not too concerned with labor.
Thanks, to any who reply and generally to this awesome forum for existing!
