Basement - Home Planning And Design
A basement is located underneath some homes. I live in California and we just don't have very many homes with basements. They're popular throughout the Midwest and Eastern United States.
If you have a basement, there's a good chance that you're going to have
a stairway that will lead you from the lower floor of the home, into it.
Some basement stairs in older homes should be replaced, if they are in bad shape. Some of these stairs have suffered from years of neglect.
A basement is usually a large utility room, that's roughly the same size as the first floor of the house. Because these rooms are located underground, it's not uncommon to find water leaking through the concrete walls.
This usually happens on older homes, but could be a problem on newer ones.
