Making cement basement entry....HELP !!!

Posted by Sunshine on August 23rd, 2000 08:30 PM

We are trying to plan how to form and pour a cement basement entry with stairs (wood) from the 1st floor going down the back of the house, then a platform at the bottom with a door (of course...) and a flight going down to the basement. OK, so far thats fine...
However, the house is on a 4 foot block foundation and the basement is all soil which we have excavated up to about 3 feet from each edge... We want to pour concrete for a floor down there too, however I'm going crazy about it because we don't want to lift the house up because of a 20 foot fireplace stuck to the house. Where to start and how is the question ???? Jacks ? Any help will be appreciated : )
