It depends upon the jurisdiction but usually you can do a lot of work if not all of it without permits if you do it yourself. In my place I remodeled, rewired, took out a wall, put in exterior doors et cetera with out any permits because I did the work myself and did not hire any licensed contractors.How much of this is legal. What I mean, did they get permits. If I buy the house and the it was built without the permits. They can order you to fill it in. Be careful...
A small conveyer belt would do the work of the bucket brigade. Small simple conveyor belts can be homemade or you could check the construction auctions or maybe tool rental places to buy or rent one.Dude. I have a 100 year old house with a tiny cellar.
I've been thinking for 2 years about getting down there and actually digging out a worthwhile basement area, and another subfloor area that would be like a "secret stash" area for SHTF.
Wish I could find some folks to help me dig that crap out. It'd be bucket by bucket so you'd need 4 or 5 people doing an assembly line type process.
I wanna do it soooooo bad
