Unhappy basement dilemma

Dear everybody. My basement is crumbling. My house is nearly 100 years old (built 1905). It is a gracious old Edwardian home, but....the laid stone foundation is leeching badly, and the floor is crumbling. So it all needs re-doing. Question is, is re-pointing enough? I've had a quote of $9000.00 for a new basement. I'd rather do it a bit at a time, starting with the walls. Would that be advisable, and how do I do it? Do I need to remove the old floor or can I add quikcrete over the top? How thick should I pour it, and can I do it a bit at a time or do you have to do the whole thing at once?

You might look at HGTV.COM then Building and
Remodeling, they might have something to help
you, but sounds like you have a very big job ahead
of you.
