slab vs. basement
Hello all. I live in a small town in Oklahoma that was hit last night by a tornado. Shook me up terribly. We are building a house and are in the planning stages. WE definitely were going to build a safe room. However, now we are considering building a basement with a room big enough to sleep in. It would replace our bonus room and be about 18x18.
I know this is variable depending on region but could you give me an estimate of costs of slab (we would do a stem wall) vs. basement? I am going to call the builder tomorrow but of course am a little hyperfocused on this right now. Thanks for the responses.
