Bench footing also increases space in a basement. It is when new foundation walls are installed by digging down from the internal wall to just above the existing footings, creating a bench between the wall and the floor.
Digging out a crawl space is another way to add a living room to your home. This process turns a small crawl space into a full basement. A hole is dug underneath the crawlspace and foundation walls are erected creating a livable basement.
