I haven't been in one that bad for a while, Marcel.

There did seem to be some head room, anyways.

What worried me at the time was the deep mud, buried sump pump and loose wiring. I disclaimed part of the crawl and noted what I could see on some otherpictures I took. I was viewing this from an upper part of a dry crawlspace. :)

I would have done the same thing under the circumstances, no sense putting yourself in jeopardy.

I just finished the course and thought it was one of the better ones so far. Just had a quick question in regards to a statement that was made while he was in the first crawl space. He was talking about the type of wood on the sill plate, saying it needed to be pressure treated or a moisture resistant type such as redwood. He claimed the type of wood was Douglas fir. First how did he know that? I never saw stamps on sill plate wood. Second, should it be stated in the report as untreated wood?

Also, nice job on the dangling spider in the video of the older crawl space! :)
