Spray foam


I've had to completely renovate my home because of mold and now i'm ready to insulate the 2x4 walls. I was thinking about going around each stud cavity with spray foam and using something like flashing tape on the plywood seams then insulating the wall or should I just skip all that and just insulate the walls? I'm planning on using fiberglass insulation. Good idea or better suggestions?

What on the outside of the house for siding and what's under it?
About how old is this house.
Got a picture of the outside in the area where the mold is?

Here's a link to what it use to look like http://www.diychatroom.com/f15/repai...r-wall-174828/.

I'm putting metal siding on it with house wrap under it.

House was originally built in 1990 but I have rebuilt and replaced everything but the trusses and floor joists.

Spray foaming those walls is not a DIY job.
Should have hired a real licensed plumber to run those lines.
Guess your trying to get by and not getting proper permits and inspections.
This is a one shot deal.
There should be no exposed seams in the outside plywood.
