A basement project is a little bit different than a normal up in the air scheme and it starts with the foundations. For a regular house extension we dig a trench where we want the new walls to go and fill it with concrete. For a basement the foundations have to go under the existing house. The first time you see a 100 year old brick wall floating in the air above a hole it can be a bit alarming, but for the builder it means moving a lot of muck from way down there to up here. The ground is always different and for this builder we can be very happy that it is clean dry sand.
P.S. The photo of the little sunny bench – this is where the doors will go!
