Rim Joist Insulating and Wall Bracing
I just got done insulating a long section of rim joist in my basement, parallel to the floor joist. I sprayed the gaps with canned spray foam. My plan was to attach 2x bracing to the side of the last floor joist and to the sill plate every two feet so I would have a way to attach the top plate of my wall. However, after installing 2” rigid, there is only about a half inch of sill plate exposed. Is this enough to rest the 2x bracing on or should I only use one 1” rigid here? Thanks!
