I keep reading that the first book written about how to build and the history of building basements was just recently written and published this past year (2011). I can’t believe that with all the books that are written every year that there are not many basement books already written. Looking for several weeks to find them about how to build, construct, or add a basement to an existing home has not been easy to find so far. I have tried general searches with a couple different browsers and keywords, but I can’t find any. Please help me find more books, from any writer, from any country, at any time before now, that prove my point on how to build a basement. You may find parts of many books that list a chapter or two about the building of a key feature in basements but none dedicated to it. You will, however, find that most of all, the trades needed written about their construction separately. Books on waterproofing, concrete in general, excavation in general, and how to layout its construction are in books from the 1980s, but that’s it. The real secret to finding books on basements is to read The Basement Kings website. The only book you will find thus far dedicated to building basements will be BUILDING BASEMENTS: THE DEFINITIVE BOOK ABOUT BASEMENTS by Willie E. King Jr. The author works at http://www.thebasementkings.net and promises to publish many more this coming year.
