Crawlspace Exterior Wall Insulation
We purchased older cottage(borderline zone 5&6) and are experiencing our first winter with it(not currently living there) and are trying to do some insulation/energy improvements where we can. Uninsulated dirt crawlspace has the following for walls. As its wood with no sheathing, Do I go with the 3/4 gap – foam – wool – and some form of covering(drywall, plywood) in this location?(EDIT – I did see a reply from Martin in another thread that suggested putting the foam directly over studs leaving the bays empty after air sealing them aggressively)
The crawlspace seems very dry at the moment and plan on doing as much plastic over the soil as possible in the future..it is the crawlspace of doom, very uneven terrain.
Appreciate any suggestions!
