cmu footings

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
does anyone have experience using reinfroced cmu for building foundations?  
the project is a single story wood framed residence, but site soil is 
expansive.  are lintel blocks typically used to create wall footings?    

thanks in advance
