Building a home with a finished basement leads to extra long-term value for your property and is something you definitely won’t regret.

Basement Types & Benefits

If you’re on a sloping lot, a house plan with a walkout basement is a perfect addition for your space. Simply enter and exit at the ground level from both the front and back of the home. It’s an ideal use of the land and convenient for you and any guests you might have over.

Other basement types include full basements where the entire area of the main level also has basement space underneath, and partial basements where only a portion of the home has basement space underneath.

As more and more people look into forever homes for their families, basements have become increasingly popular. Not only is the extra square footage the perfect place to create that bonus room you’ve been wanting, but it could also serve as a safe space during certain types of severe weather.
