Whoops! I lied. My cellar did get a little water in it which I discovered yesterday. It is just kind of wet around parts of the perimeter and I wouldn't have even noticed it except I have a few boxes stored in it and the bottoms of some of them were wet.

Basements aren't a good idea in my neighborhood, at least. It's hard enough to keep a foundation up to snuff, let alone a basement. The ground is too unstable.

I believe this one has some kind of adjustable anchors. It has been here since 1981 and there are no cracks. Amazing I know but this is a very unusual house; very well constructed. Thank you for your comments.
