Floating Slab for Residence

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Fellow listers,
I hope you can help me. I have been asked by one of my regular customers to design a slab-on-grade for a his proposed house. Most (99%?) houses up here in the great white north have basements, so it is unusual to have a sog for a house. Do you have any pointers, pitfalls for me? What do you do for frost protection? Here (Niagara) we are required to provide footing at least 4 feet deep. Thanks in advance,
Gary Hodgson
