One,The owner did it BUY HAND!Five gal. buckets,pick ax,shovel,and 6 1/2 years of his life.Don't think you would go this route.The other,outfit cut a hole in the foundation,crawl space,dug a ramp with a Bobcat through the hole.Shored up as they dug.Did it all with a Bobcat(what a wonderful machine)I didn't get to look inside at the shoring job but I don't think I would try this job at home.Took two days to dig,concrete trucks were there third dayfor footings,next day for walls,used a pumper.No idea as to cost,but this I know to replace a 42 foot by 10inch existing foundation wall(7foot6 high) I had two estimates at $35'000.Talk about sticker shock!Luck
