We have a sturdy old farm house. Currently it has a very small and rough utility basement. We are trying to find contractors to lift our house so we can put a full basement under it. Right now we are trying to decide whether to remodel or rebuild. One benefit of a remodel is that the older houses are better built and stand up better, and this house needs a lot of work but the frame is 4 x 6 and very sturdy. We have looked at Design prefab homes as an alternative. They are nice but would need upgrades to get quality products. We live in western Iowa. Thank you.
