i havent pulled permits but i will be. a - i'm doing most of the work and want it done right and to code, b - i want to be able to claim it as finished sqft so i can get some value back when i go to sell the house. i have to do this regardless so i might as well get some financial benefit. i'm sure my taxes are going to go up but should also be able to get rid of PMI if my assessed value goes up.

i dont plan on doing any plastic vapor barrier, the foam board is going to be my vapor barrier. i was researching it on the internet and the theory i liked is that vapor barrier against the drywall would just keep the moisture trapped inside the wall potentially causing more issues. i've already spoken with an inspector in my town and he's okay with my plans
