Our house does not have an outside entrance to the basement. Would like to have one. Who would do this kind of a project?

A general contractor can do it. There are several jobs involved:
1. remove earth for stairway
2. cut through wall for new doorway
3. provide for drainage
4. Build/pour new steps
5. provide new lighting for stairway ?

And doing this can be pretty expensive - lots of labor, some concrete and an exterior door. Know as much as you can about what you want, then get a firm estimate of time & materials involved.

Have ann old outside entrance that is seldom used. Standard bulkhead won't work because stairway runs parallel to to side of the house. Want to keep entrance operational, but would like to cover and secure it. Ideals.?
