Phil and I have returned to continue our discussion on foundations. In Part One, we covered slabs and frost walls, and in this part we cover basements and crawl spaces.
**Do you really need a basement?** If there's no programmatic need for a basement (like the need for a workshop), then perhaps you can do without one.
**Insulation: Inside or outside?** There are many reasons to insulate on either side. We weigh the pros and cons.
