Question DetailsAsked on 10/3/2020

Replace basement floor, 120 y.old stone house

We moved in this house not very long ago, it is stone one. Structurally sound and has tons of work done (electrical, plumbing, new septic etc)

So I'm starting to look at the basement fixes. It has some water problems: walls plastering turns in "sand" spots and peels off. And the floor got cracked and very uneven.

The basement is about 1000 sq ft. I'm looking to make it usable for recreational and fitness activities. Probably not looking to make it finished or livable, just clean, dry and with even floors.

What do you recommend to do with floors? It looks like they are pretty thin, about 2" of concrete (just looking at one hole I found). Lets say its one inch old concrete.

If the foundation goes deep enough to put all required layers by code - what can the cost of such project, ballpark estimate?
