Without knowing what part of the country you live in,you may have frost to deal with so this means you have a 4' foundation with slab.Do you want 8' basement?This means you either go down 4'plus footing or go up 4' for a raised ranch.Either way your house will need to be jacked up and supported durring exc and conc pour.
Remember,all your utilities will be disconected durring this time,so doing it slowly would be rough.
I would call in the pros to handle this.
One note:I had an estimate to replace a 42'foundation wall in my house...$30,000.
