insulating basement half walls-my plan


hi.
would this be an ok way to finish my basement walls?

-remove bag insulation
-attach 1 1/2" C-300 Extruded Polystyrene Rigid Insulation from floor to bottom of the 2x4 wall (this is about 6 feet up from floor)
-this 2x4 wall already has insulation in it with a plastic vapor barrier.
-it is also 1 1/2" out from the concrete foundation so the foam will fit perfectly
-tape and sprayfoam all gaps
-i will then put drywall over that

thanks in advance!

Fig.2-10 with a wood framed wall or fig. 2-11 with strapping, ask your local AHJ for guidance: http://www.nrc-cnrc.gc.ca/eng/ibp/ir...199/part2.html

To confuse you further: http://www.nrc-cnrc.gc.ca/eng/ibp/ir...199/part3.html

Some tests done in your location:
