Today I wanted to share with you how I often handle building a home on a sloped parcel of land.
My technique is that I combine the creation of a flat, level area with… a walk-out basement!
If you aren’t familiar with a walk-out basement… it is a basement with windows and doors on the downhill side, and one that is buried into the ground on the uphill side. It is a wonderful way to work with a challenging site, while at the same time creating additional, light-filled, interior living space.
But… there is one huge mistake that I’ve seen so many folks make with regard to walk-out basements… it’s nearly impossible for me to put it into words without showing you some drawings at the same time… and that’s just what I did in this week’s video… Building a House on a Sloped Parcel of Land.
