Advices needed on new concrete floor in the basement

4 years ago

Hello, I'm in the process of pouring new concrete over the old one in my basement in order to finish it. Current floor is not leveled, with a 4'' dip in the center of the basement over the foundation walls/slab joints. A common solution is to do a wood subfloor, but I prefer to go this way, with leveled new concrete all over the place (2'' over the current highest basement area). My problem is the following : walls are already made next to the foundation (foam, studs and drywall). Should the new concrete touch the drywall/or bottom wall plate/ or foam/ or walls foundations??? What should I do in order to make it the right way? Thank you very much!
