Modifying Brick ledge for 2″ of foam.
We are building a house with 2×6 walls with 2″ of rigid foam over OSB. The house will be all brick. There is only enough room between the brick ledge and the wall for 1″ OF foam. What are my options? Simply make the bridge ledge wider,, move the 2×6 walls in an inch. Increase the thickness of the basement wall from 10″ to 12″ . I am concerned that I will not have enough space to accommodate the floor joist. Thanks, Phil
