i am converting a garage to a living space and the finished floor of the new space will be three feet higher than the garage slab. at the point where the garage doors are being removed, is it preferable to pour a concrete wall 3 feet high to match the existing concrete wall of the garage? or can i get away with just laying sill plates on the slab on grade and using wood studs to fill in the garage door opening(waterproofing properly, of course)
