I need a bit of help. I am looking for the best way to design a basement for the home we will soon be building. I want it waterproof so that the space will be dry, leakproof and durable. What are the best methods to employ, and what are good products to use? I also want the basement to have a height of 10’. Also, What do I ask for as to my concrete mix? I am assuming it will be drier if the basement is poured. I would rather spend more money now, and not have any problems later. I hate redoing things. I would like to do this right the first time. We bought a house once that had some minor problems, and I don’t want to have that experience again. Thanks for your help.
I am in the planning stages of building and need help. I want to build a home that will be here 200 years from now.
