Can I dense pack cellulose insulate my crawl space?
I have a small 1890s house in central Minnesota. The crawl space is ranges from 8 to 18” high… this would require excavating to gain access to the rim joists and foundation walls to spray foam them. I would love to just seal off and dense pack insulate the whole thing, since the house has a footprint of only 500sf – or at least dense pack the first 3 feet from the edge. The floor is dirt, will I be creating a moisture problem if I do this?
