Starting my DIY kitchen reno and ran into the problem I thought I'd have. Furring strips instead of studs on the exterior concrete block walls. The electrical is already going to be a pain and I want to have room for plumbing and low voltage wiring so I guess I'll be framing the walls with 2x4s. But... do I go right up to the block? And do I still need door and window headers? And can I spray foam insulation right up to the block?

I'm sure I'll have some more questions as they arise if y'all don't mind!
