No problems here, yet! going on twenty five years, now. There is not one drop of cold cracking cement to wory about! Walls are 6", insulated, with sheetrock on the inside, floor is 2X4 sleepers three feet apart,[on gravel], with 2X6 floor joists, covered by 5/8" treated plywood, and 7/16 partical board overlay.....even have underfloor heating, which I never use! The joy of finnishing the basement...was no strapping on the walls, as in blocks or cement, just go ahead and insulate and finnish! People, here too, are hesitant to use wood, but are slowly comming around. Give another twenty five years, and I feel sure, that a lot more people will be convinced of their potential. Have a gooder, R.E.L.
