I am planning to put an excercise room in my basement and am somewhat confused regarding how to do this properly as it pertains to insulation, vapor barriers, etc.
I live in Wisconsin and have a full basement under the house. It is not a heated basement, but we do run a dehumidifier. We have no water problems in the basement.
I plan on using 2x4 construction. Do I insulate the exterior walls? If so, what is my best choice for insulation? What about vapor barriers?
Do I insulate the ceiling (I want to control sound also)?
I was going to put a floor in place so that laying on the floor doing excercises is more comfortable. Do I insulate the floor? What about vapor barrier on the floor?
Any help would be appreciated.
