Typar is up along most of the walls, and a small framing piece is done. The subfloor will tighten the Typar as I will have a small lip going under the Delta-FL.Why Typar?
This was recommended to me and I have read a few discussions on this, mostly debating theory vs. reality. Typar is water vapour permeable (so it is not a vapour barrier) but is water impermeable. If Typar is indeed 1-way permeable to vapour then that is fantastic and it will draw moisture away from the insulation. If Typar is 2-way permeable, then from a vapour point-of-view it really does nothing and it acts essentially as a water barrier (a splash guard) which has some merit. Either case, it does not add a negative to the system.Um, why one piece of flooring and one wall? What are you doing first ?
I am doing the flooring first. In the pics you can see my subfloor is landscape fabric under Delta-FL under 5/8 T&G plywood. I believe the walls and floor need to breathe and work together, and to facilitate that the walls need to be on top of the floor. (yes, if I have a flood it will be a little harder to replace, but IMHO a flood of that size will have a huge impact regardless).
I did the short wall piece for two reasons: 1) so I can anchor the corner sheet of plywood (with appropriate gaps) and build the rest of the floor against it, and 2) it gave me something to do while I was collecting quotes to see what furnace modifications I could afford.
Entrance to area:
From under stairs (rack area):
From far corner (almost behind bar):
In this pic you can see I started flooring by the furnace, but depending on what I can do some of it may have to come out.
