are we on the right track?
We are looking to make our basement more comfortable. We have decided on having a gas stove installed as the heat source. The main difficulty we see is deciding on insulation. The basement has been dry. There isn't even water in the sump pump hole in the spring. It seems like everyone has their own "requirements" on insulation in the basements. We are in zone 5. Initially, we thought we would use 2" foam (R-13) on the walls, no fiberglass, frame , and drywall. Now, I'm thinking 1" (R-5) T&G foam boards, R-13 fiberglass within the framing and drywall. The sill plates will either be filled in with sprayfoam (quote coming in 2 weeks) or we will cut foam to fit & seal it. Any other ideas/suggestions? Also, should we put down a layer of foam like a sill plate gasket under the pt board?
