I guess I thought if the bales were mortared same as strawbale houses are they would be safe & I didnt even think about critters chewing up the foam but that would be a mess.  The space ranges from 3′ to 1′, the floors are insulated with R-19.  I am gonna have to replace some of that cause over the years it has started falling apart.  Once that is replaced I will do something like you described.  I was just trying to figure out a way to create a warmer space under the house similar to what you would get with a clock wall foundation without actually laying block around the perimeter of the house.

 

Thanks for your insight & enjoy this snow we have coming our way!
