Foundation Problems

Recommended Posts

I modified the original post for plan. I was having problems uploading the plan because of the file size. Used drop box and should work now.

Joey, I fixed it somewhat by selecting the wall shown, flipping it and realigning with the wall above. BTW, I flipped the wall so my snaps would work okay.

The  problem with Joey's solution is the step is now about 12" inside closet.  However this might be good because the way you have it set up,  the closet slab is 6" lower than foyer slab/....  is that what you wanted?

 

My solution in this video does not have joeys problem,  however I minimize the footing between closet and bath from 26" to 12"  AND I ALIGNED THE FOOTING WITH EDGE.  The two things I did to make it work was to align the edge of slab  with footing.....  I think this i acceptable,  you decide,  and I also move a wall forward and then back and did a rain dance around my computer and it was fixed.

 

One of those situation where you have to kick the  tires,  say a couple of curse words and pray to the CA gods and all will be well.

Thank you guy's

 

I meant for the closet to be 6" higher like the entry and that fixed everything. That was all it took.

 

Stupid me! :unsure:  :unsure:  :unsure: :unsure:  :unsure:

Another question;

 

Is there a quick way to make the entry way foundation depth match the rest of the footings? I always struggle with the altering slab foundations.

You also need to select the raised footings and deepen them to match the un-raised footings.

Not sure what you mean. Are you talking about the 6" curb I have going around the garage?

Nope, look at the bottom of your footings only at the raised portion, they need to be 6" deeper to align with the rest of the footings, Its all about the depth into grade not the depth of the footings.

Select each raised footing and add 6" to the depth

I tried what P said too Joey  but I think cos its a monoslab , it wont let you select just the raised portion by the look, like you can with a normal stemwall footing ,though I'm no expert on Mono Slabs.

I think most people aren't looking at the plan. I believe what a lot of people are saying won't work.

It shows in my picture that I posted that the foundation in the raised area seems to be part of the foundation all the way across the front.

 

You can see where I selected it in the picture

Joey, I don't think most people realize that which is why I said what I did in my last post.

NO I DIDN'T MEAN THAT

I meant what I said, select the footing and change the depth of the footing only, to Add 6", you still want the slab just like all the other levels, 4" thick. There really is no stem wallbut if you consider it a stem wall it would also be 4"thick but 12" wide or whatever the footing width is.

Break the foundation at the corner so you can change independently, you should be able to adjust it also.

Got it! But I had to use the wall break tool and intersection tool to get it to work.

 

Nice Find , I didn't think of that after find the same issue as you originally , didn't think about the Monoslab actually having a wall as Perry mentioned.

You said something that is very important to understand.

The conc footings are actually walls. They behave as most walls behave.
