With the cost of moving so high and stamp duty more and more people are extending their properties rather than moving. We find that many people looking for a basement are growing families that do not really want to leave a certain area due to schools, local amenities, & friends etc. Many of their properties have already been extended to the maximum above ground so a basement is a great option to give them all the space they require without having to move.
No, not at all, we can create a basement if you have nothing but solid mud under the house!!!
We would suggest a minimum of 2.4m although where possible 2.6m would be ideal. As for how high, there is no real maximum although we would suggest the height is in proportion to the width otherwise if it's too high you end up with something that looks like a narrow corridor and too low makes if feel confined. Although be aware the higher you go will have an affect on the price.
