Adventures in Outer (Crawl) Space
DH suited up in tyvek with a respirator and spent some quality time in our new crawl space. It is under the back addition which started out as a sun porch and was converted to a bathroom in 1953. We are keeping it as a bathroom, but it needs serious work.
Once all the crap was cleaned out and the old moldy insulation torn out, we could see what we were dealing with.
Turns out that the joists are pretty rotten from water damage, so DH has been sistering new joists.
The strangest thing was that the crawl space is actually 2 feet wider than the room upstairs...there is a leaking tin cover over those 2 feet. This is covered by a deck at the rear.
What suggestions would you have for dealing with those 2 feet? We want to make it water and weather tight.
