here's a basic mock up of the precast basement walls from Superior Walls. i sent them a copy of our plans and they sent back basic shop drawings such as this view, dimensioned plans, header heights for openings, beam pocket locations, etc. After they make a few adjustments to window header dimensions we'll be all set to order. Lead time is only about 2 weeks right now, so we could have a basement pretty soon.
i am flying to the site in less than 2 weeks to stake out the house with the excavator!
