how to use 2 inch foam insulation

by House DiY   Last Updated October 19, 2019 20:21 PM - source

Cabin has EDPM roof, real 2x4 rafters in the one room. I have slabbed on 2x2 to the rafters in the room, inside, to make a 6 inch cavity. This is an accommodation for poor contractor work shoving 6 inch insulation into the 4 inch cavity. Some rafters have fiberglass. One rafter section has nothing. Going to put foam board in it. What are the rules for vapor barriers with the EDPM on the top of the assembly? Do I fill the cavity with the foam board or just one at the bottom with air between to the roof? Roof underlayment is old wood board.

Intent is to then cover that section with 1/2 foam board foil faced down and then wood wainscot. Eaves are rather leaky... No actual ventilation in the eaves.

Northern US zone.
