Slab vs. crawl space
Hello. I seem to have written my question incorrectly previously. I am preparing to build a 1,300 sq. ft. home in northwest Montana.
Around here crawlspaces and basements are the norm. I am researching using block frost walls (no basement) and a slab. Most of my builder friends are counseling me against this.
I want to have some wood floors and some tile. Wood floor area would be poured at a lower elevation. I would lay down treated sleepers and plywood to attach the 3/4 flooring to.
Does anyone have any good information to layout a pro and cons list? The alternative is ICF frost wall with top of joists set 1 1/2 above top of the ICFs.
