I have a wall in the bathroom where two third of the length is an exterior
wall (concrete block) and one third of it is newly framed interior wall with
standard top/bottom plate and studs with 2x4.
For some reason, it did not hit me at the time, so I framed the extended
part of the wall flush with the concrete block wall. Only the concrete
block wall has 5/8" furring strips on it, and the wall has electrical
conduits and water lines running along it.
So now if I hang sheet rock on the exterior block wall over the furring
strips, the extended portion of the wall will be recessed, unless I fur out
the interior wall too. I don't want to move the interior wall out, as it
affects other things aftached to it already.
Any advise would be appreciated.
