This house is located in SC and is built with 8" block walls. What is the best way to insulate and apply vapor barrier. I have to install studs to the interior of the block for seismic resistance and attach the studs to the block. The block walls will basically become a veneer. Can I apply a paint vapor barrier, and which side of the block should I apply it to?
