I know this is way off topic, but thought someone here could answer a
question for me. I live in upstate NY and I want to construct a bar
downstairs. I have a concrete knee wall which is framed out with 2x4`s
with sheet rock over it. The trouble seems to be that the original
contractor placed plastic sheeting on the studded walls AFTER the
insulation(with brown paper facing the sheetrock), Im told this is
incorrect. The vapor barrior(plastic sheeting) is supposed to be up
against the concrete wall, then the studs and insul. and sheet rock.
Does anyone know what the correct metod is? I have to tear
some sheetrock down to run wires so I can correct it if wrong.
