Mark Parages almost did this for me, but I know he did it for his park ridge house and others. Great local contractor

My brother is the GC for our construction business. We remodeled two houses next to each other in Chicago and excavated both basements deeper and added a drain tile. both were roughly 20, 000. Call my brother Andrew 312 480 1776 if you want him to come out and give you an estimate. Here are the houses for reference https://www. redfin. com/. /3010-N-Spaulding. /home/13448695 https://www.redfin.com/.../3012-N-Spaulding.../home/13448383

Its crazy expensive and varies wildly from house to house. You will need all new footers poured for the foundation around the entire home, sewer work and way more. At least $50-60k.

Also consider the water table where u live. By going an extra foot down could put u dangerously close to getting floods in ur basement when that table rises during rains.

The previous owner did it to our house and it allowed 9ft ceilings in our basement, but they didn’t put in a drainage tile system. 5 years later we began to have seepage and hydrostatic pressure issues. Had to tear out the perimeter and have the lines dropped and a pit put in. Make sure to have the sump pump/drainage tiles put in if you do this. There’s standing water (water tables) under all the homes in Chicago. It’s ground water. When the levels get high, that’s when people experience water coming through cracks in their foundations. The deeper you dig, the more you push down on the water table when you pour the new foundation. Can be a bad idea if you have the wrong people doing it.
