Our buider tells us that building a full basement is much cheaper that a "slab on grade" with a four foot frost barrier at the perimeter.  We don't understand how this cold be true.  It would also mean that it would not make sense to use infloor heating ane geothermal heating as we had planned.  Your toughts?
