I have a 120 yr old home with a dirt crawl space that is completely dry, no Mold in the entire home, has new windows and new insulation in the attic. I have started the insulation in the floor joist from the crawlspace. I would like to know the correct way to insulate my crawl space regarding vapour barrier and what to do around vents and plumping pipes when installing.
