Slab Foundation

Recommended Posts

Sorry to be blowing up the forum this weekend, but I've got a project due Tueseday and am running into all kinds of things with a 70's as-built.  My latest issue is getting the footings of my slab foundation to align correctly with two projecting brick columns at the entry of the home.  When I auto-build the foundation it does a fairly good job, but ignores these brick column walls.  When I extend the already generated footings to cover these areas I run into all kinds of problems.  I have attached various images including a screen grab of the original plans from the 70's along with the Chief file.  Would someone please tell me how to accomplish this?

Vs just drawing a slab footing?  Takes only 1 second





Thanks for the reply.  The slab on the front porch needs to be recessed for the brick pavers and there is no footing connecting the two brick column walls.  I was going to fill this area in with a polyline sold.

Thanks for the suggestions.  Alchemyjim - I tried placing an invisible wall to "bridge" the two brick columns.  When I did this, the end caps of the brick walls disappeared.
