I'm in Utah, and so far almost every house I've lived in, as far as I can recall had a basement, often very BIG basement. We are in a desert here in this state, though and maybe that's why the ground's dry and the water table low, usually.

No basements on BonAir Mt. 24to 36 inches down and your on solid rock.

So I built my man cave above the garage. So heaven is 12 steps up, not down.

I grew up in Michigan and didn't know anyone who didn't have a basement.

Then I moved to Texas. No basements in my part of TX because of all the clay in the soil.

I miss my basement

There are houses in our area that have basements, very few, very old, very expensive houses. My husband's grandmothers house, downtown had a basement. Anything built after 1890 probably does not have a basement. We have no frost line, no high water table, few weather realted emergencies, lots of land, big yards & room to build as many square feet as you can afford on a single floor or two story if you so desire.
