I started my basement project two years ago. My home is a bungalow built in 1963 with a cement block basement that was left unfinished. The project began by digging out exterior of basement, re-tarring walls, adding 1" of p2000, installing new weeping tile with sock and covering with pea-gravel. All the concrete walls have been painted and the floor coated with epoxy. There are no moisture issues at all anymore. Since exterior walls have been insulated from outside I may just leave the walls looking like a roadside motel.
Since the canning room is empty I would like to insulate the interior walls and ceiling to keep it cooler than the rest of the basement. I also plan to insulate the basement ceiling and interior walls when I do get to them. I don't plan to keep the canning room cold, just cooler and the rest of the basement will remain at the same
temperature as the upstairs.
My question is, do I need a vapor barrier on interior walls and basement ceiling?
That makes sense. Thanks for the info.
