Dear Handy American,

I have a small home that is a little over 700 square feet that is in Lima, OH. The basement ceiling is only approximately 6 and a half tall. I would like to have an 8 foot ceiling and I saw on HGTV Sarah Richardson who dug out the basement to make the ceiling higher. Brilliant!

The use of the space of the basement in such a small home is really important and so I am considering this renovation. Is this an expensive job and if so, approximately how much would it cost in Ohio? Thank you.
