Romex and insulation vapor barrier

1686 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  Captflx
I am running 10/2 for a new 240V outlet on exterior wall in my shop. . It's going to be much easier to run the Romex between the sheet rock and the insulation paper vapor barrier rather than between the fiber glass and the sheathing. Is this a code violation for the Romex laying against the paper vapor barrier?

The wire is for an air compressor, 3.7 h.p. I drilled thru center of top plates and going down between two studs. Using box for "old work".
