Insulating and moisture barrier for poured foundation
I’m building a house in Zone 4a with a poured concrete foundation, 40’ wide and 44’ deep. The south wall of the foundation will be 2 x 6 construction and walk out basement. East, west walls will be partially exposed at the south end and fully embanked on the north end. It is possible to embank most of the east and west walls. North wall will be fully buried. Building on a hill so drainage and water table are not an issue.
What moisture protection and wall insulation should I consider? Interior? Exterior?
