Insulating a basement

Posted By: Al Johnson

I have a pier and beam house in the South that has approx a two inch clearance between the floor joists and the back wall of the basement. The basement walls are one foot think concrete. The other three sides of the basement connect to the floor of the house. The basement does get humid in the summer but has no condensation and no leaks. What would be the best way to fill in the two inch clearance and insulate against the humidity? I have thought about drywall but thought paper faced insulation would be easier to cut and install. Would paper faced insulation provide much protection against the humidity? Thanks for any input.
