I'm building a garage on an incline. 1. Must foundation be level or can I follow grade under frost line? 2. Can I step foundation starting under existing foundation up to new foundation pour? Note: All pours under frost line w/ req requiring 1' x 1' foundation. I hav illustration of scenerio. Let me kno, and I can send. [/img]
Yes the foundations can follow the incline but they must be a series of level steps.
As a rule, w/ a 1' x 1' foundation, the lenght of the overlap has to b as least the height of the foundation which in this case 1 ft. I may hav to do serveral overlaps....is that ok???
