Stucco Skirting Pier and Beam House

Post by borgward »

How do I add stucco skirting to close in bottom of pier and beam house to the ground? Is there a source for detail drawings. I understand a layer of moisture barrier is put up, then chicken wire or lath, then stucco is applied to the lath. How much stucco is applied, how far does it protrude from the pier. I live in Bastrop County TX but am having trouble finding someone that does it. Would prefer to hire it out, but will try doing it myself if need be.

Is there a source for vents? I want a vent that can be closed in the winter. Does the vapor barrier continue under ground? How far down and how far away from the house?
