  • question on the" best way to insulate abasement"

    I just watched the vedio .

    But I have a question about build the frame. Should we build the frame and then put the foam on the floor? otherwise the frame will be on top of the foam and it is not easy to connect it with the concrete floor then. what's your opinion?

    The idea is to have a complete thermal break and vapour barrier. If you put the wall up first it will be difficult to maintain the sealed vapour barrier. Foam first then floor then build wall on floor and use Tapcon's every 4' or so to secure the wall to the floor

      My opinion is that you missed the whole point.
