Correct way to insulate this situation in bathroom
It looks like they insulated that space completely from the exterior, as if it was all interior space. If so, no need for soffit vents, because it's all considered heated space, but I'm not sure it was done completely / correctly.
I'm kind of confused about the vapor barriers facing each other. I would think the barrier should all be the same way, helping create a warm / dry zone, but it looks like the walls have paper facing the exterior (incorrect?), and the floor of the soffit has barrier facing interior (correct?). I would consider that little roof area to be a continuation of wall and insulate that, to create one, contiguous insulated exterior "wall".
