We welcome callers’ questions each week on the Today’s Homeowner Radio Show. Here’s a question from our Nov. 16 broadcast: Shawn in Iowa moved into a home that included an addition from a previous homeowner. There isn’t any access under the home and the cold air and moisture are making living there uncomfortable.

Listen to the embedded audio clip above for the full answer! Read the blog from the Nov. 16 show and listen to the full broadcast here.
