Hi Eustace,

You can assume your garage has foundations. The foundations were designed to hold a slab at the level it's at now. You would have to do some extensive structural work to achieve a deeper garage. You may be better off building a new garage.

With the information you've given, I would recommend a budget of $100,000.

Good luck with your project.
