Thanks for the advice. I'll probably end up doing this.

I read that the drywall doesn't provide a rigid enough backing to the track, so eventually it gets wobbly.

comment Are there any dangers associated with rigid foam insulation?
Ya, I've heard it's nasty, and code requires it be covered by a fire barrier - drywall suffices. From what I've read, foam insulation is a vapour retardant (if I'm using the right terminology), not an outright barrier. I'm getting conflicting reports about foam & VB, so I'm going to ping a local contractor. Nonetheless, thanks for your reply DA01 - not the first I've valued today.

comment Should I install a vapour barrier if I'm using rigid foam insulation?
Ya, that's what I've seen in places too. However, I'd need to have an airtight seal for the VB to be superfluous. Since I'm attaching the foam to whatever siding is there, (I haven't ripped out the old insulation yet to take a look), I don't know if I'll be able to create an airtight seal. Your comment still stands though - there should only be 1 airtight seal. Thanks.

comment Should I install a vapour barrier if I'm using rigid foam insulation?
I've heard that too, and I've also seen comments that say "breathing" is nonsense. I'd tend to believe VB is necessary as otherwise - what's to stop air flow? Thanks for the comment!
