Whats the best method for framing out a room that is all cynder block? I really dont enjoy hammering masonry nails other than maybe one or two. Ive heard about some power nailer but wanted to gather some ideas before spending any money. Ive got to frame in 2×4 so I can go back over those with sheetrock or something.

If you are trying to save space then frame the wall with 2×2s then either tap con screw it to the wall or you a hilti gun .
If space is not a issue then frame a 2×4 wall in front of the block and then attach it on the top and bottom plates .
