Batt placement in basement wall
I’m about to finish insulating my basement which I have already insulated with 2 inches of foam against the block foundation from the top to the bottom. I was planning on also installing rockwool in the stud bays. However, one of the stud walls is 4″ off the foundation and I wasn’t sure how to insulate this. Should I fill the whole gap and studs with insulation? Just the gap? Just the studs? Also, half of this wall is going to be in a finished, living area of the basement while the other half will be in a storage area. Would it be better to insulate the wall between the living area and the storage area and leave the area behind the wall in the storage area with only foam insulation or would it be better to insulate the whole length of wall in a uniform way? Thanks for any advice!
