My house has what used to be a wooden deck behind the kitchen. At some point someone put sheetrock walls up and make it part of the kitchen/house.
The floor is about 4 feet above the ground. Nothing between the floor and the ground. During cold spells this part of the kitchen floor gets very cold.
I would like to put some insulation under it.
My thought was to put rolls and/or bats between the floor beams.
I'm wondering if this is OK. I'm thinking that I would want to cover the insulation with someting to protect it from the ground and whatever creatures are hanging around.
would I do this? What kind of material would one use? A plastic vapor barrier or some kind of sheetrock?
