Has Anyone Ever Increased their Basement Size?

ddd2motivateSeptember 15, 2008

I want to add a 2 story addition to my home, with a basement. I have an exising 2 story home with a full basement - so I was thinking that this would not compromise the existing foundation, by excavating pouring an additional basement foundation, and then cutting a door opening to the existing basement.

So, anyone out there done this, or know how doable this is?

Code and engineering aside, what were you planning on doing for a ceiling?
