Here’s another hiccup….... the purlins are spaced 20” apart. So I can’t use standard 15” wide insulation. I would have to jump up to the 23”, which means I’d be squeezing it in there tighter, which I know decreases some of the R value….

If i used a foam board up between the purlins, would I still need to put a moisture barrier there? Isn’t the point of the ridge vent to get rid of moisture, so is moisture barrier needed?
