- it's like being outside, only cooler
- i feel rustic
- no more worrying about if moisture is under my floor -- i can see it now
- not tempted to store things down there, i'll just bin them straightaway
- get to look at dirt and sand that no one's looked at for 108 years
i also have a trench on three sides of my house. not sure it's as cool as a dirt floor, though.
