There are three different types of basement conversion, these are explained briefly below. If you have additional questions, please give us a call or drop us an email, a member of our team would be happy to explain each of these methods in more detail. Under House - Tunnelling In most instances, Cost Effective Basements can excavate below your property, whether you have an existing cellar or not and in most cases, you can continue to live in your property whilst the work is carried out. The amount of extra space you want to create is entirely up to you within reason; you can choose to build below the whole footprint of your house, or just under a specific area in order to gain the amount of space required. Sub-Basement Construction is not restricted to a single level basement; we have experience in building multiple level basements, including the installation of cinema rooms, swimming pools, wine cellars, plant rooms and additional home storage. Generally we are asked to complete such projects when the client doesn’t want to take away vital living space from the main basement area. Under Garden - Open Excavation Should you prefer not to excavate below your house, you can choose to construct a basement below your garden, or if the creation of a basement under your house does not fulfil the entire need for space, the basement can be extended beyond the boundaries of the main house by carrying out an open excavation and extending out below the garden. The open excavation method is the most cost effective and the quickest approach to building a basement or carrying out a basement conversion. If the open excavation method is chosen and the basement is built under the foot print of your house it is likely that you will need to relocate during the construction phase.
