ClarkeThrasher Posted February 11, 2020 Share Posted February 11, 2020 Common practice in Tidewater VA (Hampton Roads, 757) for crawlspace foundations has been 8x16 CMU Piers approximately 6' on center supporting 6x6 Treated Girders with continuous Brick Veneer Skirt Wall that is flush with the exterior frame walls -- the floor joists cantilever the short distance from their girder bearing to rim joists to be flush with the veneer and support the exterior walls. I guess in the parlance of CA these are Stem walls. But after exhausting all the Online Help Foundation Videos I haven't been able to arrive at an automated method that will produce this type of foundation wall. In the past, I have just built these in CA plan piece by piece, object by object but that is a huge hassle. Anyone have any suggestions? If so, thank you for your consideration! Screenshot attached is view from most recent plan for an addition, code here will no longer allow solid 6x6 girder so this shows a triple built up 2x8s.
