We are building a house and debating on slab on grade vs crawl space. It will be a 4 season house/camp that we will live in for a few years while we build our house next door. Own two properties next to each other. Will slab on grade be a problem without in floor heating? We will just be putting a Woodstove in and don't want in floor heating but I'm concerned with moisture from the slab and having flooring over the concrete causing mould issues.
