Hi ABBI. Are u saying your house does not have a full basement???. You will need to consult with an engineer about this.I have done four of these jobs. Its not something a DIY can take on. there is a lot of equipment and experience for this type of work. hope this helps. BOB.

Be careful! You may well find that you are already illegal by having a bedroom in the basement. The code people will give you problems there if there is not a legal size window in that room. And in basements, there rarely is.
