To raise or not to raise

How much would it cost to raise a 900-square foot house a few feet & give it a new foundation? Looking at 1912 Craftsman in Seattle that is a good deal but would only work if we could add some space, and the attic doesn't seem tall enough to add dormers. Just looking for a rough idea of what to expect.

The basement (which is really only a 1/2 basement) is just tall enough to walk around, not tall enough to finish off. Ideally, we would dig out the other half of the basement. I have no experience with home improvement.
Additionally, I'd like to rip out the oil heater (which feeds radiators) and put in a gas furnace.
Anybody have experience doing this?
