In normal conditions are vapor barriers in basements installed after the insulation towards the living area?

irod,

I recently finished my basement. I did extensive research on this topic last year. The pros are divided on this issue. In some states/cities the building code has actually changed.

I used kraft faced batts with vapor barrier already on them and faced the vapor barrier to the inside.

Good Luck.
