    Hey all:

    I have a question about some porch insulation in the floor. I'm glassing in my porch with some large slider windows. When done I am looking to maybe heat it but not all the time...I am going to put a nice cushion of insulation in the floor....would it be ok(without condensation build up) to staple a layer of poly over the floor insulation for added resistance to infiltration? If not, can someone give me some recommendations to what I can safely put over it.....thanks everyone.
