Our house in zone 6 has its shell closed and is insulated but the wall’s interior vapor retarder (Intello Plus) will not be installed before spring, and will remain unoccupied…

[Its current state of is Typar /1,5 in of low density fiberboard/ R20 of hemp batts between 2×6 studs.
The floor is concrete pourred Oct 26, hydronic heating in function; the ceiling is a cathedral with R60 cellulose and foil-faced fiberboard; triple-pane windows]
