comment What type of flooring can be used on a concrete slab?
@DMoore I didn't say that I didn't want wood or tile, but I just had some concerns about them. Is there a type of wood (or wood like material) that is suitable for use in a bath / laundry area?

comment Should I apply rigid insulation between existing basement framing?
The tar paper is between the furring strips and the paneling, not between the furring strips and the block, so I'm not sure how successful that would be a waterproofing ;-). I thought it may have been some attempt at a vapor retarder? I didn't notice any moisture damage to the paneling or furring strips. There are some spots on the block that are darker than others and on one wall, there was a good deal of that white powdery substance (efflorescence?). However, I don't think there is a serious moisture issue because there was no rot, mold or anything on the furring strips.

Thank you for the suggestions. The tar paper was there when I removed the wood paneling. Can you tell me what purpose it would serve?
