Basements are substructures or foundations of a building or home. It is the lowest habitable story and is usually entirely or partially below ground level. Basement foundations typically have ceiling heights of 8' and are often finished off as living or storage space as needed by the homeowner. House plans with basement foundations can’t easily be built in certain regions of the country where the water table is high. So, basements are usually the preferred foundation in the Midwest or Northern parts of the country as opposed to the Coastal areas or Lowcountry regions that have a high water table. Basements must have a door accessing the outdoors to pass local and national fire codes.
