Where: Herriman, UT
We wanted a deck off the back side of the house and a walkout basement, but as you can see in the before photo, the dirt came right up to the bottom of the main floor. We had to excavate 30 dump-truckloads of dirt to tier the yard and create a walkout. Although we started off with a general plan, we became more and more creative after viewing episodes of This Old House.
