Old Cracker boy from FL (No basements there) wants to do one
Ok, I grew up on an Island in SW FL. A high tide with a full moon put a foot of water in our yard. I now live in SC. I am coming down to the last 1/3 of my life and will retire next year. (my family lives a long, long time). I plan to buy a small piece of land here in the Upcountry of SC. Basement country. I plant to build my own house, very small, like 16 to 20 square, two story and I want a basement. I have no clue how to build one. The idea is for me to continue working and do the house in steps. FIRST STEP, the basement. I am hoping for the right conditions, ie a hill side that I can dig out. Where in the hell do I go to get ideas on how to proceed?
