    Hi Neal! Thanks for the reply, and I WISH! There's some effort going into flood prevention in
    the area, we'll see how effective it is. Unfortunately, all I can do on that front is show up
    at budget he...

    FYI: previous discussion here =

    This old house is suffering from more and more stormwater due to continuous development in the
    area. The crawl space not only shares a great deal of moisture with the stick frame floor above
    it, it is...

    Yes, the stream is the northern line of the property. I've lost more than 10' of land to storm
    water drainage. But that's another project in itself. :)The southern end of the property
    borders a nation...

    I don't think I want a sump pump. I lean toward old school solutions. Too much development in
    too small an area creates a flood problem for the lower district...I don't want to just pass
    the problem a...

    Half is a mud room/utility space, and the other half is a spare bedroom. Regarding flood
    control, I have long term plans for flood water mitigation on my property. I have also engaged
    the county on th...

    Cool. Will work toward keeping the floor height as is.No leaky walls here. But the surrounding
    developments have been known to send 6' or more of rushing water through our little valley. The
    flood wat...

    The existing framed floor is almost 2' above grade, resting on the top of the foundation walls.
    I could drop the floor height down to grade to avoid interacting with the above grade
    foundation. It wou...

    Thanks for the info. So, sand/insulation/slab. Makes sense to me. Should a vapor barrier go in
    there somewhere, or is that a function of the insulation? To do this one room at a time, I'll
    have to bui...

    Howdy handy helpers!Welcome to my first post. Well, my first post in years. I rehabbed a 1936
    Bungalow style with the help of a forum such as this. Now I'm back in the saddle, only this
    time on a much...
