My name is Alvin - I'm a homeowner of 6 years and am looking to do a basement dig out.
My wife and I purchased a house dates pre-1900 and we're looking to extend the house, both in the basement and by creating a second floor above the kitchen. I'm hoping to meet someone here who I could speak with who would know an excellent structural engineer in the metrowest area who I could speak with about the project.
I've met several contruction companies and basement specialists who have come by and recommended that I focus on the structure of the house first. Especially since the house is not especially well structured.
If anyone has any questions or recommendations - I'd love to hear them. We're at the very beginning of this process and would love to learn more.
