Frankenstein basement retrofit
I created the attached diagram based on the advice offered here (and elsewhere) to achieve a dry, insulated, and radon-free basement – for a home with a rubble foundation built in the late 1800’s.
I’m far from an engineer, but this is what I plan to give to my contractor regarding what him to do. I would be incredibly appreciative to anyone who could point errors in my outline/thinking or anywhere I should provide more detail for my contractor.
Many many thanks,
