Should I even consider a basement?
Hi guys, Im starting to think about building a 2000-2200 Square feet ranch on a lot that I own. My wife is set for the basement she just has to have it. Now a small east part on my lot is a flood plain zone A as you can see in the pictures. As you can see from the tops that where the house will be standing is about 6 feet above the flood plane level. Im thinking of also raising the basement 3 feet so I would need to go down about 6 feet to have a full basement. Both my neighbors on the sides have basements. Do you think I should scratch the basement idea all together?
I'm also linking to couple of images since i cant post more than one.
