OMG, that’s so insane!! It’s incredibly hard to have basements here in Texas because the limestone makes it almost impossible/prohibitively expensive to have one built because of the limestone, but I always wanted one as a relative had one in Arkansas and could go there in case of tornadoes (which terrify me), but like you, they had the same problem which makes it a royal pain. On a separate note, I’m sorry I missed the Uncle Remus /Tar Baby reading on NPR. I’m going to find it. Loved that movie as a kid (before I realized, well, you know. I just thought he was s sweet old man and felt sorry for the boy having to wear that red/wine velvet outfit. And the whole getting chased by a bull thing. That’s never fun, lol.) Hope your basement gets fixed soon!

Lisa - It continues to be a pain. I never had a basement growing up, we were, like you, in Texas. In Missouri we had a slab house. The basement is handy for storage and tornadoes, and for collecting ground water, evidently. A dry basement is a big selling point for a house. I wish I had known it is an impossible goal before I started on this path.
