To visqueen or not to visqueen?


I have removed a 6'x8' dbl. french door from a patio to a bedroom. I framed the opening and insulated with craftfaced R19 and dry-walled the inside. I put up durarock on the outside. I'm installing vertical 6" T&G bead board as an accent wall to cover the outside. It will be stained and sealed with a spar varnish. The question is should I put up visqueen over the durarock to add a moisture barrier under the T&G, or is it not necessary and will it not allow the wood to breath. The porch is covered and screened, only possibility of rain is during a hard storm. We are very humid here in Florida, so...?

Any input is appreciated.

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