The long awaited basement walls are being installed. Not being able to dig down for the basement, we built the basement above current ground with the plan to back-fill the land around the house. The property is in a bit of a low area, a few feet lower than the road, so back-filling the land is going to greatly help with water control.
We had considered briefly going without a basement and just having a crawl space. This wasn’t a good option for us as was have lots of hobbies. Not to mention the need for a large space to house my model railroad again someday.
