How long should I let my house settle before I re-model the basement? The foundation was poured in December 2005. The home has a walkout basement.

Doug,

I assume you are asking because you are concerned that a water leaking problem could occur. However, a basement water problem always has the potential to occur, especially over time, and yet some houses never leak.

Did I answer your question? I can only say that its based on risk, and what you're comfortable living with, there is no time table to base this on.

If you have the concern, then preventative steps are best. Read this article about Getting Ready to Finish Your Basement (http://www.basementsystems.com/basement_finishing/), and maybe it will help.
