    What’re the odds of that?

    Why can’t they put something like Christmas lights in a closet or shelf instead of “crawl space.” I never heard of “crawl space” before.

    It’s generally a mostly unused area within the foundation of a house and under the first floor, less than “stand-up” high. If dry and well ventilated, useful for storing seldom used items like seasonal decorations and running ductwork and piping, but little else, Quite common when for one reason or another a full basement is impractical or undesired.

    Indoor access to the crawl space?

    Crawl spaces have cool stuff: stones, nails and bits of building debris that are treasures to 5 year olds.

    I had a house once where the crawl space door was in the garage. That’s probably where theirs is too. In my experience crawl spaces are usually dark, dank and spidery.

    Geez, how’d he get a degree in dentistry when he’s too stupid to get a weather forecast?

    Now, that’s not really fair. John lives in Canada — it snows every five minutes there in winter, so there’s really no point in getting a weather forecast!

    Mid-Wisconsin has plenty of snow, though north Wisconsin has more. About crawl spaces, you’d sure have heard of them if you lived in Florida. Six feet down, we hit water. One place we lived, the crawl space was underneath the whole house. We found a possum under there once, fattened it up, and ate it.

    Thank you Susan. After 5 years of living here in Ontario Canada I’m getting fed up with people who think it snows all the time here. Sure in the northern provinces it does more than here but in Southern Ontario our weather is pretty much the same as for the northern US. We even get hot and humid summers.

    A ventilated crawl space is a harbor for mold. My wife and I just got done with removing mold from the crawlspace in our house. Ventilating it makes it accessible to the moisture that mold lives so dearly. We now have all of the walls and the dirt “floor” covered with heavy (10 mil) plastic and all air leaks have been plugged with expandable foam. No air flow equals no inflow of outside moisture.
