If this helps anyone, I am planning to insulate under a covered porch that has block for perimeter walls which are about 2 1/2 feet tall, underneath is sandy bare ground. My thoughts are to lay 6mil plastic right over the grade and up the walls a foot or two to keep the moisture at bay then use faced batted (faced side up) between joists and staple chicken wire or a plastic snow fence material to the joists to help support the insulation. I bored 2 holes on either end through walls to create some type of air flow through the space and covered them with vents to keep critters out.
hi there I have ready big deck and want to use that in winter time. I want to put pink insulation between joist because I have double deck . after filling insulation between joist how I should cover it so doesn't get any moisture in winter and rainy season.another question is can I make any convert able room on upper sack and how. please give some idea.
