Foundation Setback

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
UBC Figure 18-I-1 (Setback dimensions) shows a distance of H/3 from the face of footing to daylight, H being height of slope.
 
Whether it is an exterior footing of a residence or a back yard retaining wall, when does this Figure apply, versus the 5 or 7 ft to daylight typically used. 
 
Thanks,
