Dirt Cellar

After cleaning out most of the cellar the other weekend I'm looking for ways to make some subtle improvements without going crazy. Right now it's a dirt floor, stone foundation, spiderwebs and insulation that's decomposed and hanging from the ceiling. It's pretty nasty.

We do get surface water that seeps from the foundation, but the drain and sump I put in some time ago appears to handle that without an issue. Of course it's humid.

I don't think it's not a big enough space to warrant digging out and pouring a slab. Was thinking about just smoothing the floor, vapor barrier or heavy poly and a few inches of stone. New insulation as well.

Don't need to seal it tight as it's an older home, but just trying to make it a little more useful.

Ideas?
