"Action" sequence of putting down a floor in your basement crawl space


Here I am leveling the basement crawl space dirt ... I moved a LOT of dirt! (pavers allready in place)

Still a pile of dirt over here

But looking better here

And this is ready to be covered

Build wood (4X4 and 2X4) frame
on top of concrete pavers

Install 4" corrugated pipe
Active radon abatement system if needed

6 mil plastic over the pipe
and under the wood frame

It came in a 1,000' roll, so for overkill,
I put a second sheet over the wood frame

Carpet pad pieces stapled on make this a bit easier

First two pieces finally in ... and darn level too! ;-)

This doesn't look too shabby!

After a couple of year hiatus, I restarted work in early/2005 to finish up the project.
Go back to the main basement crawlspace page and/or check out cutting 8" rebar concrete!
