    www dot crawlspacedepot dot com has some videos for the DIYer as well as materials. Make sure and use a good 12-20 mil scrimmed liner for the floor so it doesn't get messed up. Allison Bailes blog has a whole series on crawlspace encapsulation

    Recent post in a different thread... "The folks over at Building Science Corp. have quite a bit of objective knowledge in this area. They seem inclined towards conditioned [including sealed] crawl spaces. Here's a link to their deep research on the benefits, along with background science, discussion, technique, etc. (http://www.buildingscience.com/resou...nd-crawlspaces)"
