Hello from Chicago
 
I just stumbled onto this forum and I'm liking it a lot. I'm a fairly inexperienced DIYer just about to embark on a basment finishing project. The problem I've got is a partial full basement (small) and partial crawl space (large). The crawl has full height poured concrete walls, and about 500ft2 that I'd love to utilize. The dirt is excavated down to about 8' around the perimter in a 2' trench. The house was built in 54' or 55' and I don't know why they didn't excavate the entire basement. Since the walls are already full height I don't think I will have to do any foundation work other than getting a slab poured. Any thoughts on getting several tonnes of dirt out from under my house?....cheaply

If anybody has any thoughts or you think I'm crazy I'd appreciate your comments.

Thanks :thumbsup:
