Let it grow, let it grow, let it grow..

Want to impress the family and house guests this Christmas season with the latest and greatest interior winter/holiday decor? Did I mention you can do it for free? Yep, that's right, absolutely free!  

Follow these few easy steps to turn your wood floors into a magical snowscape!

1. Don't ever look in the crawlspace or have it inspected..ever

2. Neglect all exterior/interior crawlspace moisture management practices 

3. Ensure the crawlspace has plenty of open foundation vents

4. If there's a vapor barrier on the ground, remove it, as it traps moisture

Amazing isn't it?  Once the "snow" starts, just keep feeding it humidity and moisture, just like a Chia pet for your floor!

I’m a proponent of having the hatch to the crawl space open during every open house. A quick look below can reveal volumes about the house condition and you don’t have to be an expert.

Pretty neat for your area, but it doesn't snow at all where I live, so it won't likely work here, haha.

Or your own skating rink. Amazing how some people neglect simple maintenance on their biggest investment.
