I am a SF & considering purchasing a lot which the previous owners have begun some excavation and have ran into some huge rock veins that would need to be blasted if you would like a home with a basement.
HOWEVER, you can not blast in that area so I have found a great 2 story slab home plan.
Here are my questions:
1. What are some pros and cons of a slab basment?
2. How do you connect your water and sewer up to the city lines - it doesn't make sense to "chisel" through the rock? How is that done?
3. As well, the driveway has been chiselled out of the rock to make it a gradual slope, my car can get through it but I am not sure a cement truck would be able to get up there... is that a problem...do they have a way of getting around that?
If anyone has any tips or advice I would love to hear it!
