Adding a Basement Under an Existing House?I am buying a wreck of a house and it is on a slab. Has anyone got an idea how difficult it is to get a real cellar put in under an existing house? And if you have ever had or known someone who did this, can you live in the house while they are doing the new basement/cellar?

Inexpensive Basement Finishing?I want to fix up a room in my basement for my kids to hang out/play in. Currently it is an unfinished basement, but we do have rooms framed up. The exterior walls are insulated with plastic sheeting over the insulation. We cannot afford a traditional basement finish. Does anyone have ideas for an inexpensive fix up to make the basement more warm and inviting to be in? (ie: wall treatment, flooring etc.) Would love to see before and after pics from anyone who has done this.
