I recently had perimeter drainage installed on the inside of the basement with 6-mil plastic in the areas that is below grade. I am now in the process of framing it out. The rear elvation is a walk out with full cinder block instead of 2x6. I am framed out about two inches from the foundation and I am in Zone 4. Should I apply a foam board to the interior cinder block walk out area or can I use Faced r-13 throughout the basement walls ?
