Thanks for the response. The basic assumptions are not quite correct I have revised your first paragraph (see what follows). BTW, thank you for taking the time to provide me with input on this. You have solved my concerns regarding the retaining wall and grade beam combination. Thanks again, Dennis -----Original Message----- From: J.

The Columns are 20 to 30 feet from the hillside. The pad is level although there are level changes throughout the home that step up a foot or two by choice - not by necessity of geography. Therefore, the gradebeam has 20 to 30 feet to daylight. The columns are 20 maximum height from the top of gradebeam to the bottom of roof GLB's. The column is exposed for about 20 feet on one side and 15.5 feet on the other. the 4.5 foot gain is the difference in the split level and is retained by a wall.
