footing edges

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Hi Dennis:


If I understand your question correctly, the edge of the t-shaped footing should end precisely at the property line, unless your client wants to purchase adjacent lands. 


When you mention setback lines, I think of zoning setbacks.  (Sometimes 6 feet from the property line, depending on your location.) It is acceptable to extend past a zoning setback line with a footing under ground, as long as face of the building wall is no closer to the property than zoning allows.  Sometimes municipal codes allow overhangs to extend into zoning setbacks.
