If you strap the entire interior with 2x4's running horizontally like I did, you get a perfect thermal break, a place to screw the interior to, and it bridges over the chair rail.
It also makes space to run wires, plumbing, ect.
That's how Jasty did his.
And I did mine.
And there are 4 or 5 others that did as well.
IMO it's the best way to do a interior. I would not think of doing it any other way.
Using 3/4 plywood strips doubled up works better than 2x4's. Unlike the 2x4, the plywood will not warp, pull loose, split, ect.
