What needs to go behind a shower surround on an exterior wall with 2" of exterior foam sheathing?
I have a client doing a whole house remodel. They've already wrapped the entire exterior with 2" of EPS and are insulating the interior with blown in fiberglass. What insulation / air sealing is needed behind the fiberglass shower surround on an exterior wall to achieve a dry, air-sealed envelope? Can they get away with just fiberglass batts there or is a rigid air barrier needed on the interior?
