I am purchasing a full log cabin. Would like to live in it all year, it's three season right now.
I have had a quote to raise it and put a full walkout basement under it.
Can anyone tell me a cheaper way.
If I did a crawlspace, how would i route the water and septic
so it wouldn't freeze.
Why not get a contractor to pour a foundation and then lower the cabin on it? By preforming the foundation you save a lot by not placing it on stilts and are able to have the water and waste line sleeves installed prior to the cement pouring and then you can insulate and have the outside of the foundation water proofed and being UNDER Ground it is a lot easier to keep from freezing
