The new floor is not yet fully in, but our hygrometer is reading lower than ever humidity levels! Previously, it was rare for the humidity to dip lower than 75-80% (yikes, yes). 65% was welcome when there was a strong breeze through the house.
Well, now that same hygrometer is reading more around 50% humidity, a much more acceptable level of moisture. Wow! I’m trying to not get too-too excited yet, because of course the floor is not yet complete, but I do believe this is an excellent sign for positive change. It suggests that moisture was indeed rising up through the gravel in the floor.
More on that later!
