I'm looking at some ideas on how to seal my basement and one thing that I
notice is that all the joints where the framing meets the foundation are
open. I don't mean drafty, I mean I can look through the gap and see the
neighbor's house clearly.
So I'm looking at this thing and wondering how can I seal this? There are
two ways in my mind that I'd like to think about
1) Permanent but not proper, some sort of sealing foam or something. How
would I do this if I didn't care about correctly fixing but still fixing.
2) Correct solution. What is the correct way to solve this? How would I
seal the gaps in a way that a carpenter would accept? Lift the house up,
remove the framing and lay down new boards??? If new boards are layed down,
how do I bond them to the cement?
