MOUNT VERNON, IOWA (July 19, 2005) -- Turning a basement into lower level living holds tremendous potential for any home. It makes space below the house functional and liveable. It is cost effective, economical, safe, durable, and environmentally friendly.
With lower level living space homeowners get more space for less, which can be used as a safe haven from nature or just room to grow. The extra space provides a warm, dry area for storage, as well as easy access for heating, plumbing, electrical, gas and other services.
The Concrete Foundations Association (CFA) has released Lower Level Living, a brochure that provides builders and homeowners with important information needed to consider building below. It is a great addition to any poured wall contractor’s resources.
Lower Level Living can be purchased for $1.50 per brochure by CFA members and $4.00 by nonmembers. To order your supply, call 319-895-6940 or order online at www.cfawalls.org.
