Adding Height to basement?
I am looking at an older (1910) house to purchase. The house is a small 1.5 story with a full concrete basement. The basement ceiling is only 6 ft high. Too low to be usefull for anything other than storage.
I was wondering if anyone had experience lifting an older house to increase the ceiling height in the basement?
I saw it done once to a bungalow across the street from me and they were done in a week! The lift itself only took a day and they had the space framed and windows in in 2 days.
They also were living in the house the whole time.
Ideas, experiences, advice and costs would be appreciated!
