My home interior walls are thick redwood paneling in the bay area mountains. i'm about to start removing the wood in my second bedroom and want to install a moisture barrier on the 1 outside wall of the room.
I found this page: http://www.naturalhandyman.com/iip/infenergysavers/infthickenwalls.html describing the process of making a wall thicker by converting to a 2x6 stud allowing for more insulation. The last step before the drywall went on was covering the wall with a cellophane moisture barrier.
My question is, will adding this moisture barrier to the inside of my walls raise potential for damage inside the wall? There is currently insulation and T1-11 siding and no moisture barrier on either side of the wall.
