Basement wall insulation


When installing paper faced insulation between studs do I have the paper facing towards the concrete wall or towards the inside of the basement?

Paper always faces toward heat. So in your case it would be toward the inside of the basement. However, not sure if faced insulation is what you want. Might want to do some more researching around this site for how others have insulated their basements. also check out http://www.buildingscience.com/index_html
