Make Crawl Space into Basement?
I have a 50 year-old house. Half of it has a full basement and half is crawl space with the same concrete walls as the rest of the basement and a concrete slab. I don't know if the footings under the crawl space walls are the same depth as under the rest of the basement walls.
Has anyone ever converted a crawl space like this into a basement? Obviously lots of dirt removal, probably a hole in the foundation. Possible? Stupid to try? Expensive?
Thanks for any comments or suggestions.
