we are thinking of upgrading our cottage. Currently it is off the ground at various heights, from 6" to 3 ft. Supported by cement blocks at various locations under the cottage and some around its perimeter. In order to install a master bedroom and ensuing plumbing needs to be installed in this crawl space. Also we are trying to make it an all season cottage so a fully heated floor would be ideal. What is the best was to seal the complete cottage foot print when there is not enough room to get under the building? How would moisture affect this area and how would be the best way to control the moisture. This building is in central Alberta so temps range from -35 C to +35 C.
