Basement Excavation to get proper head height

The project pictured on the right is indicative of homes in the Denver area where basement areas were finished, but with limited head height. The owners orĀ previousĀ owners did some dig out and got just enough head height to get by. The new owners called Alpine to remove the existing concrete and some of the dirt floor and dig it down another couple feet to get proper head height. Foundation walls are the biggest thing the homeowners over look is when they remove the concrete and the 1-3 feet of dirt that exposes the bottom of the foundation walls, (THEY NEVER EVEN THINK THAT YOU HAVE TO ADDRESS THE FOUNDATION WALLS AS WELL) so we have to not only pour the new floor but we have to shore up the house and pour new foundation wall extensions as well.
