I am looking to finish my concrete wall and floor basement in the Chicago area. I seeing many different ways of doing it. My main concern is sealing out mositure and insulation.

I plan to use 2 x 4 for framing. 2 of the 4 walls will be 3 feet from the foundation because of utility stuff. I plan to seal the walls and floor with a concrete sealer. Should I insulate the walls and install vapor barriers? I would appreiciate any help. If I need to insulate and add a vapor barrier, how are they placed?
