Hello and welcom Waylon, to the best darn DIY'r site on the web.

Have you ever considered insulating the foundation and heating the crawlspace, helps keep the space dry and the floors warmer.

If the moisture content of the earth does not require a vented crawlspace, encapsulating (vapor barrier) across the floor and insulating the walls is ideal.
