Hi, I am looking for information on excavating a basement in an existing home.
Calling around get's me two extreme answers of "You wouldn't want to do that" and
"it's easy everyone does it!"

I'd more detail :)

I am willing to jack the house up (I've done repair work like that before), but I need nore information
on the worries of the actual excavation and the temporary structures, as well as worries and things to
to considered. Books, web sites, or phone numbers would be greatly appreciated.
