My parents fought our leaky basement for years and years. My husband and I are now in the planning stages or our new home. We have been talking about having a basement but I always shutter at the thought of a damp moldy wet basement like my parents had. Soooo, my husband suggested we build our 40 X 40 stick built house over top of a 35 X 35 basement. We would be doing as much of the construction that we could ourselves, is there still a good chance that we would still have water problems?
