Basement Framing/Sheetrock in NJ


My basement is 99% dry - once in ten years the outside downspout over flowed and I could see moisture marks a few inches down the walls but never on the floor or puddling.

When framing and prior to sheetrock:

Do I need to use a vapor barrier?

Do I need to use green/moisture resistant sheetrock?

17,000 dryer fires a year, when did you last clean the inside of the dryer near motor or the exhaust ducting?
