Do the floor first, that way you aren't cutting the subfloor around all of your walls. Also, in doing it this way you don't have to worry about putting sill gasket or poly under your walls to keep them off the concrete - just build them on the subfloor.

I think the Barricade system calls for the subfloor to be fastened if using carpet - every 6 ft or so you'd need to secure the perimeter of the subfloor to the concrete.

Yes lay floor first then build remember to leave gap between wall and floor, after framing I filled with spray foam. I anchored every 6 feet or so with a single tapcon (perimeter only). I'm not sure why the told me to leave a gap if I anchored but that is what they told me to do when I called.

Yes 7.19 can be expensive however, purchase on a 15% off weekend and then use your rona card to double up and suddenly you have 30% with free delivery.

Cheers

Rob

the barricade is around 4sq feet so thats like 1.80 sq/ft
i thinks it worth the extra $1 for the added thermal value and ease of installation..my 2cents..

I used tyroc in my basement, the big draw for me of the product is that it's completely inorganic, no moisture absobtion (osb) and nothing to grow mould.
Went down super easy, just glued the sheets together.

i considered tyroc. looks a little flimsy from their demo video. i would probably need osb on top of that before I lay laminate. is yours pretty solid?

Oh no, I wouldn't bother with osb over Tyroc before laminate. Just laminate foam. You can do laminate over DeltaFL or Platon, so I don't see how Tyroc would be different.
