Finishing my basement: wall insulation?
Hi all. First post. Been lurking for a while trying to find some answers to convince myself I can tackle my basement finishing project.
My home is in Freeland MI, zone 5 for insulation code purposes. My basement has poured walls, excellent drainage and radiant heat tubes in the floor and is unfinished. I'm going to stud frame and drywall the walls. Should I put a vapor barrier between the poured wall and the stud wall? Or, should I not install a vapor barrier so the wall cavity can breathe and just insulate the wall cavities? Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.
