I also have a split basement/crawl and I am interested in finishing at least the basement part. I would be very interested to know how much it would be for the crawl to be dug up, but I don't think I will have the financial means for sometime. I was wondering if I can essential seal off the crawl space from the rest of my house or if I need to leave it open for ventilation? I am trying to do as much as possible by myself. If you could give me any suggestions I would appreciate them.
Thank you for your time. Good luck with your project as well. M. Barr
