One cannot just remove the floor of their basement to gain height. This could ultimately damage the structure of the current foundations. Instead, we excavate the existing foundations and develop new ones. This is an approach, known as underpinning, used to heighten the ceiling of a basement further, to transform a storage space into a livable place.
Crawl Space Conversion
While employing the underpinning method, we can build a crawl space conversion. What was initially an empty space with no use can be converted into a very useful storage space, office, or even a bedroom. Before the basement floor is lowered, we dig beneath the foundations to add new ones.
Bench footing is a process that consumes less time and is a more expensive approach to basement lowering. This process allows for new foundations to be installed instead of excavating under the existing foundations. These new foundations partly overlap with the old ones. This ensures structural stability, but it does utilize space in the room, as a bench is left around the perimeter.
Bench Footing + Underpinning
Underpinning is a fairly expensive approach, but it does help to make the best use of the floor space. Bench footing is a simpler technique, but it leaves a bench around the edges. Most people prefer combining both underpinning and bench footing. A good example is underpinning on one side of the room, and fixing a bench into the design of the other. A combination of these is the best option, as it lowers the costs.
