I am purchasing a 100 year-old, 2 story farm house. The basement is lacking in space and is somewhat damp due to some dirt floor areas. Also, about 1/2 of the area under the house is crawlspace.
I want to have the house (45′ x 45′ footprint) jacked up and excavate/pour a proper basement.
Structurally, the framing is in great shape and seems to be a good candidate for raising. How much does something like that cost? How high would the house have to be raised?
Assume that I can handle all plumbing and electrical reconnection issues.
