Sorry for the bump I am ordering the insulation tomorrow along with 70 sheets of mold resistant rock and want to make sure I am clear on what I should be ordering. 1) Faced fiberglass (preferrably asphalt paper-faced) on top of the 2" XPS foam board in the rim and band joist. AND 2) Unfaced fiberglass inside 2x4 wall cavities.
As to insulation in a basement , no vapor barrier, use unfaced fiberglass, or better yet use blue poly foam instead, no worries about moisture/condensation with it, apply the blue foam directly to the foundation, install strapping on top or build your walls just in front of the foam boards, with no insulation in the wall cavity.
