How do you demolish a house without damaging the existing basement?

by Kelly

We are starting the process of building a new home. We are tearing down an existing 1000sf house that sits on and existing 1000sf basement. We want to KEEP the basement and build half of the new house on top of that foundation plus add another 1000sf of crawl space to make a larger house.

Is it possible to demo a house without damaging the basement walls? Any suggestions?
