Exciting! I'm enjoying watching your progress. We moved a house 8 miles in 1966. Always wished we had added one more row of block. We were on a crawl space.
Our current house we built in 1985. I insisted that my basement finish ceiling would be 8 feet. NBD until I told the builder the basement floor had to be 12" higher than the original grade of the soy bean field we were standing in. He asked why so high. I said I grew up in a swamp and wet basement. Code required a sump pump pit. 32 years and never a pump in it. Elevate, elevate, elevate.
