Crawlspace height

It's fairly common for exterior crawl hatches to be 32x16 or 32x14 steel hopper windows here. At 6'2 and 235 it's a tight fit but I get through. The lowest crawl I was ever in was 12-14" below joists. Not fun.

11" inches? That a helluva fit.

I've not gone through an entrance that tight, but I've slithered under water pipes that brushed my chest rather snugly. I think you get points for that one.

Did you drag much with you into that space?

Piece of cake for Jim. Past the hatch, it widens to 14" so he was able to  breath that lovely dust.:(

You'all have Hanta virus down there, so a dust mask is pretty important. Other than that, I'd have a screwdriver, camera and a light. Lost a few screwdrivers that way.

Dust mask won't block Hantavirus.  Need a respirator with P-100 filters.

Yup. Nothing less than P-100. Love the pink....
