Has anyone (DIY not hired out) done the foam board insulation on foundation walls, minimum 6ml plastic sheets from the sill plate down and covering the whole dirt crawlspace and close vents.?
I don't have any "water" issues what so ever.
Going to mold treat then seal for insulation/cold wood floor and save on energy.

I know ya clean the ground/rake all debri/organic/wood/matter/rocks/pull down and falling and loose floor joist insulation/

Kinda hard to find a company that will do part and let you do part- of the job- just to save some bucks- so- DIY??

Sounds like you got it covered. That is how we do mobile homes except the ground barrier just goes up sides about 8" to 12" or so.
