HI IAM BUILDING A NEW OUT BUILDING AND HAVE JUST DUG MY TRENCHES FOR FOUNDATIONS.
1.WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO GET THE LEVELS RIGHT FOR CONCRETE.
2.DOES THE DAMP PROOF COURSE HAVE TO BE ON THE SAME LEVEL AS OTHERS WITHIN THE GARDEN,ON SLOPING LAND?
ANY HELP APPRECIATED.
Just pour the concrete it will find it's own level.
The damp proof course should be a minimum of six inches above the adjacent ground to the wall, at the top of the slope, nine inches is better.
You can of course cut back the ground near the outhouse to lower the dpc.
