detail but where is the lateral shear transfer at the exterior
We see this design
too. Mostly because there is a lot of peat and the cost of fill is
expensive. Our web site www.muni.org/building has a typical
framed garage floor detail. Click on handouts and then go to #42.
Do you still provide under floor ventilation? I believe it

Re: Raised garage slab
The system that Dennis described is what
I've used. You should have a waterproof membrane under the topping slab,
perimeter curbs under the garage walls, and positive slope of the entire floor
out the garage door -- we had a grated trench drain just outside the door
because the driveway sloped toward the garage.
