    I have put up insulation on all of my outer walls, I first put up a 4 mil sheet of plastic then built my walls and after I put up r15 insulation. Do you guys feel this will be OK? I am almost ready for drywall and I guess I just want to be sure about doing this. I do have a 2 inch gap between the wall ant the concrete wall. What do you think?

    Depends on the objective. If that’s to slow transference of temperature, then I’m sure it’s fine. If the goal is to inhibit the transference of sound, insulation doesn’t help much there. However, with concrete walls you should have all the soundproofing you need.
