sunken living room

Is it possible to lower all floors to the sunken living room level so that you do not loose ceiling height? thanks!

Re: sunken living room

it all depends on how everything was framed but i would say that you have a 99% chance of NOT being able to do so. also, i think it would be cheaper to raise the living room floor and the living room ceiling than lower the floors in the rest of your house. never heard of anyone wanting to do this before.

It could be done, but are you willing to pay?

Even if you could pay, it will be a nightmare.

There is nothing that our skill and your money can't accomplish.

Even if it takes raising the rest of the house.
