Re: New footing beside existing

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I can tell you when connecting adjacent footings is prohibited- that is
in CA when a mfg. home footing is beside a site built garage. Not only
cannot the footing be connected in any way but there also can be no
connection at the plate or roof or anywhere.
