What can you tell me about building a block wall basement?


Answer by  Jimbob (2275)

The biggest cost is going to be the forms you have to gt to form the wall. Foam forms are the most reasonable.

Block wall basements are an older technique that without additional materials will not pass energy requirements in many areas, you should ask your local building code enforcer before building anything that will bear the weight of a house.

You will want to dig the basement, lay the floor first (make sure it is even) then you can work on the walls. Four should do it, use cinderblock with mortar to hold them. Use waterproofing caulk on the exterior to seal it.
