In reply to vapor barrier by bob r on September 8th, 1999 11:55 PM [Go to top of thread]

If you already have studs up without a vapor barrier nad your basement is dry, I wouldn't tear anything out. My father finished his basement 25 years ago without a vapor barrier, and we've seen no damage from moisture. If there's any way you can leave some open space at the top and/or bottom of the wallboard, the additional airflow would be helpful. (that is, if you're installing a drop ceiling, you might be able to have holes in the wallboard above the ceiling line to allow air to get behind it.)
