Adding a basement

I am seeing quite a few basements being added or expanded on older homes, so what should we be concerned about for durability? Should we insulate? should we have drainage? what about the mechanical equipment and air leakage? Vapor barrier?

Its a great time for Lenders to sign up with

FHASecure expands the number of borrowers eligible for FHA- guaranteed loans to include homeowners in default. FHA borrowers take out loans from about 8,500 qualified lenders, paying an added insurance premium. Their monthly payments are guaranteed by the Federal Housing Administration, which covers defaults from the pool of insurance payments, using no taxpayer money. In addition to not missing any payments before their mortgages reset and having at least 3 percent equity in their homes, eligible borrowers must have a job and the income to cover the payments, said Steve O'Halloran, spokesman for the Department of Housing and Urban Development, which oversees the FHA.
