RE: Floating Slab for Residence

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Install the perimeter footing and insulation.  

Use a 5" thick slab, reinforce the slab, and tie the
slab into the foundations.  My preference for slab
reinforcement is #5 @ 12" oc each way.  This may seem
like a lot of reinforcement but it will control the
size of the cracks.
