This will quite possibly involve an engineer, as the wall is most likely structural. Before you begin, make a trip to your local building department and verify what will be required. You may be pleasantly surprised to find that there are existing documents or an excepted alternative to engineering. Your local building official is the only one who can determine this for you. Hope this helps! Terry

The definition of an unfinished basement is a basement or lowest floor of a house that has not had finishing done on walls, floor and possibly ceiling. An unfinished basement would have just the foundation concrete for the floor and walls, with the the workings of the ceiling exposed.

If the basement is "finished" then yes. If it's a typical basement with exposed joists, no.

It's colder in the basement than the water coming in the pipes. Seal up the vents and drafts in the basement. Wrap the pipes
