skinny on insulation...
I have read numerous posts here on ways to properly insulate / finish a poured concrete basement that has not had any know water issues for 20 years. Alas, there appears to be some question as to how to properly insulate.
I am thinking of starting my basement. I will work one wall at a time.....this may be a long project. Anyway, I have one wall with no electrical needs so I figured I'd start there and see how it goes and then decide if I want the hassle of proceding or letting a contractor take over.
My plan was to:
1) Put up 1/2" pink board over poured concrete wall
2) Put a pressure treated 2x4 sill up tight against and along the bottom of the pink board; attaching to concrete floor.
3) Add a 2x4 sill to the ceiling beams, again up tight against the pink board.
4) Stud in vertical 2x4s evey 16 inches
5) Add unfaced fiberglass insulation between studs.
6) Affix drywall to studs and finish.
How does this sound? I have found opposinng views on butting the 1/2" pink board right up agains the poured concrete. I have read that liquid nails and such will leave air pockets for condensation to build up. I have read posts suggesting that a 1/2" gap somehow left between the poured concrete and pink board to prevent moisture build up / mold. I have read similar posts on using craft backed insulation between the studs over the pink board.
I want to get this right so what will work best and be most cost efficient?
