Re: RE: RE: basement wall restrained by wood floor

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I apologize for the term not correct and I also agree that special considerations should be made for an 80 foot by 40 foot basement such as designing it as a cantilevered retaining wall.  I am only suggesting that they are more economical ways to design an 8 foot high basement foundation than to place a plus or minus 5 foot wide continuous footing below it.  Such as installing counterbores at 24 to 30 foot intervals around the exterior of the building.
