Basement insulation in Minnesota
We recently purchased a home in MN where the basement is an unfinished walkout. Most of the walls are above grade with fiberglass batts and poly. Recently with the current cold snap and we are in the process of planning to finish basement we noticed there is condensation on the exterior sheathing. What would be the preferred method of insulation to fix this issue? Code requirements in our area is to have the vapor/air barrier on the warm side. Most posts I see is we should avoid this. How do we avoid this when the code requires? Spray foam?? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
