Insulation for a mud room floor?


Hi all,

First time poster and first time home owner (1927 fix me up before i fall down special)

I have a mudroom off the back of the house that is elevated about 3' off the ground. I want to insulate underneath the floor and close it off to the elements. I was wondering if once I got the insulation up should I put a vapor barrier and enclose it with pressure treated plywood?

Thanks

Leo

Vapor barrier won't hurt anything and p.t. plywood is overkill. Regular plywood properly caulked and painted will serve the purpose...
