Thanks Bill for the information.  Problem is, this is not a drilled pier
project.  It is a simple spread footing.  I wish I had piers.

Er, well, who decides this? Are you necessarily stuck with S.F.s? Not
that I'm trying to dissuade you, but drilled piers are such a fact of
life in Texas, it's hard to believe that anyone would have any problem
with it.

(I recall a job several years back, a Wal-Mart store near Dallas. Just
happened to be one of those few areas around North Texas with no
expansive clay problems, and I put the columns on spread footings.

Got an RFI during the bidding phase, several contractors wanted to know
if it was okay to just used drilled piers instead! Surprised, I asked
why. "Well, hardly nobody uses anythin' else 'round here!" was the
reply. It was actually cheaper just to get out there and drill 'em!)
