Hey, first time posting here - just moved into a new house and the basement looks to have insulation on the exterior walls but no stud framing. I was trying to look this up on google but everything I found was about what to do for finishing a basement with no insulation present. What I'm wondering is: should I just plan to frame out the walls in front of the existing insulation and then attach drywall to that framing? Would it make sense, if I do that framing, to add additional insulation between the studs? Or is there some way to get the walls covered without needing to do a lot of framing work? Or perhaps I'm just completely misunderstanding what's going on here in the first place. Appreciate the help!
Here's a photo of one of the walls for reference.
