Asymmetrical Footing

Recommended Posts

We are doing a basement renovation, where we are lowering the floor in order to create greater ceiling height. This involves demolishing the existing basement floor and building a new foundation stem wall and footing inside the existing foundation. The footing on this new foundation is asymmetrical. It's exterior is flush with the new foundation stem wall and extends 3 feet into the basement. 

 

Can you create an asymmetrical footing on a foundation wall? That is, where there is no exterior footing  but a substantial interior footing.

      Is there a way to add pre Mfg. brick to outside of the foundation above grade that does not affect the porches etc or parts you do not want it?

      I've looked for a thread on this topic but cannot find one.  Typical construction is CMU stem wall on footing and slab.
       
      I would like to show outside edge of foundation block and all thickened slab areas (for bearing walls and posts).  I see the foundation block on floor "0" and the thickened slab (under bearing walls) and post footings on floor "1".  I would like to display all this on one layout and add dimensions for concrete, plumbing, and other under-slab work.
       
      What is the best way to do this without redrawing a separate plan to accommodate these items?

      I am trying to construct a home on a slab and I am going to use ICF walls around the perimeter with footings. The bottom of the footing needs to be 52" below grade and the interior of the icf walls are filled in and the slab is poured either on top of the ICF walls or inside the ICF walls. All the tutorials show how to make a slab foundation or a crawlspace but I don't see an option for a stem wall and footing below the slab without a crawlspace.

      Is there a room dialog to prevent this from happening? Ideally I want to make the cantilever a "cantilever" room and have it not generate walls under the cantilever with auto rebuild foundation walls on. Unless there is an easier way? Copying the balcony room settings ends up generating walls like the attached picture, still generating walls under cantilever. Feel like I'm missing something very simple.

      I cannot get the floor joists to  build.It originally a regular slab home.  but now it is pier and  beam with concrete  block around preiemerter at 8' o.c. or wha ever engineer specs out.  I cannot the the floor joist to build on first floor, cannot garage to show 4" drop with preimerter  walls and regular lab,garage left wall to close in. Rear deck will not show up in rendering either.
      FFE 61.00, top of cmu  blocks 60.00, existing grade 57.30', top of grade beam 57.33. garagefloor 52.33 8 cmu blocks abovegarage slab.perfer 12" all around outside of garage foundation. 
       
       
      I would appreciate getting the first floor joists to be installed. and the other issues.
