Bathroom wall insulation question
My house is in northern Maryland, Zone 4, which has both cold winters and hot humid summers. My house is unusual for the area in that it’s built out of concrete block, faced with brick and I have plaster walls with no wall insulation currently. It’s built like a cold fortress.
I am gutting my master bath and would like to insulate the walls but fear creating a mold situation. I am reading a lot of conflicting reports on both the insulation type and the placement of the vapor barrier. A lot of this stuff gets over my head and has me spinning in circles waiting to start the project.
I am leaning towards no vapor barrier, dens armour waterproof drywall, latex paint, and unfaced fiberglass insulation. Is this a good or bad idea? I have no idea anymore. Thanks in advance.
