Question Seperate Basement Entrance

Has anyone installed a seperate external entrance to a basement suite/apartment? How much, roughly, does it cost to dig down, poor a concrete stairwell, cut the door, install a door, and build a small shelter for the stairwell? Perhaps better yet, where might I find some "do-it-yourself" info on this type of project? Thanks in advance!

cutting is not DIY

Cutting the doorway in the existing foundation is not DIY. While you may be able to rent the cutter its not wise. The blades are diamond cutters. Breaking it would cost more than hiring a pro.

As for the rest - sure you can do it.

For help - check out the local library.

Yeah, a pro for cutting the doorway sounds like good advice. Thanks for your comments, BobF.
