Just wondering, how much it would cost to dig and create entrance with stairs to a basement from outside? I want to open up my basement so I can rent it out. I guess I will require a permit as well. Has anyone done it recently in Mississauga and can provide some general quote with pictures?

You should be budgeting around $ 20 to $ 25 thousand. Do NOT go for the cheapest quote here. this is serious work.. disturbing your homes footings - City will be tough on inspections and engineering. We do this work and can tell you that its for pros only - no weekend warriors.
