Dear PoP – How to do a Basement Dig Out?

Photo by flickr user mytoenailcameoff

“Dear PoP,

I recently purchased an older rowhouse in which the basement is in rough shape. I have come across a number of rowhouses in which the basements have been renovated through expansion, i.e. dig down a few more feet and make it more inhabitable. I was curious if you might have any recommendations on companies that might perform such work. Or if you if know of anyone that has dug up their basement and might be able to pass along their experience/recommendations. Any thoughts, ideas, stories would be appreciated.”

Has anyone had this work done before? Any suggestions?
