hile one of the main functions of a basement foundation is to support the entire weight of your home, there are plenty of additional benefits to selecting this construction method over a slab, crawl space or post and pier foundation. The basement is typically the same size as the main floor plan so you can greatly increase your living space and adding value and efficiency to your new home.
As home builders' trend toward downsizing continues, the appeal of having a finished basement floor plan continues to grow. Our designers and architects are incorporating complete basement layouts featuring media rooms, recreation rooms, wine cellars, kitchenettes and much more into their house plans. You may not have the funding to fully complete your basement at the time of construction, but as your family grows and space gets tight, you'll be glad you paid a few extra dollars for the basement option.
