INSTALL DRAIN TILES WITH BASEMENT LOWERING
Once the foundation is set, you should install drain tiles on all sides to prevent water from getting into the basement. This will prevent it from being flooded and cause flooding. Then, when you are ready to use it, you will simply need to drain it and move all of your stuff to another part of the house or the basement
KEEPING BASEMENT DRY AFTER BASEMENT LOWERING.
Once the basement has been lowered, there are a few things that you can do to help it become dry faster. First of all, you should use a dehumidifier or air conditioner to keep the humidity down.
There are also dehumidifiers that you can purchase for this purpose. To increase the amount of moisture you have inside the basement, you can place a piece of wood over it or even a piece of cardboard that you can spread down the walls. This will help.
You should also check regularly if you can keep the humidity in the basement down. If you find that it is too high, then you may want to make some changes in the way you run your heating and air conditioning system. It is also important to make sure that there is enough light coming through the windows, especially if the weather is extremely cold.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER BASEMENT LOWERING?
When the foundation of your basement is set correctly, you can then start to put any furnishings in the basement. If you are moving furniture, then you can either put it on the floor or in a closet. You will also have to make sure that you remove anything that will be sitting on top of the floor.
Furniture should be kept in a garage, where there is adequate storage space. If you want to store a lot of heavy furnishings, then you might want to put them in a basement drop. Otherwise, you will need to stack them so that they can fit on top of each other.
