    funny watching them build homes in the south where you just scrape off some dirt and pour a "foundation". no actual crawl space.

    No crawl? How about no basement? Very strange to see no excavation.

    What is a "basement"?


    "Excavate" here in Florida and you will hit water.

    About the same way here in Katy. I thought it was crazy when I visited my uncle in Chicago and we hung out down in the basement.

    No expectation of a basement down here. Miss the storage. Attics are HOT! But we live outside a lot more so we don't need the rec space so much.

    A basement is the other half a house.... Almost. Funny we have them and its likely harder ground etc here than there yet it is very Normal for you Not to have them. Even Crawl spaces are virtually unheard of here.

    We do have other issues to deal with . Namely a frost level of Aprox 8 ft. Which then means our Plumbing services are Deeper yet so that the plumbing in the basement has somewhere to go . A few exceptions are made and Plumbing is pumped UP, but then freezing issues are quite possible.Our water supply piping is Deep to avoid the frost.

    As for square footage it usually adds nearly 1/3 to 1/2 to the size of the house depending on weather its a 2 story or Bungalow style house. Economically it makes way more sense i believe. Once basements are finished ,if done properly,can actually be warmer and or cooler than the rest of the house.

    We, i must add are in a weather cliimate, Where heat is a Must most of the year and a very sellect few will opt for Air conditioning. This i know would be a big change from most of you Warm weather folks. We honestly have but a couple weeks a summer where AC would be a real nice thing.

    Anyway to each his own and looking forward to seeing pics, hopefully of how some of the house is built etc. I'm a plumber doing new home construction, so its always interesting to see how things are done similar or different in different parts of the country..
    Good luck on your new home..... Enjoy.
