Re: Residential Footing projection P

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I suggest that this helps reduce eccentricity. Basement walls or
foundation walls are often 8" wide while the footing may be 12" or 15"
wide. Thus a 2" or 3" projection on either side reduces or elimates
eccentric bending in the wall and footing.
