Build a basement


I live in central Arkansas and am planning to build a small new home with a walkout poured basement. How do I figure the cost of the basement?

No. I'll have it dug, forms put up and poured.

Just give the house plans to a local contractor. He can look at the plans and the site and give you a price. - They you can get a couple of others for comparison. Go with the one that seems to give you the most value and the best description of what it includes and not just the cheapest.
