    So you do have insulation in the attic,some confusion in terms.
    This is what most folks normally consider as insulation in the attic.

    I have a 1920's house and have removed the lathe and plaster in an upstairs bedroom to get rid of some scarey electricity and insulate. I have a cotton insultation. Question is do I put a vapor barrier-visquin (Sp?) between the insulation and the outer wall and do I put something on the inside wall of the insulation under the sheet rock.???
    Help

    Yes, I already have insulation in the attic, although not enough yet since I haven't gotten all the knob and tube out of there. The question is about walls.

    If you live in an area with cold winters the vapor barrier only goes on the warm side.
