I'd like to know how the author slopes the slab 1/8" per one foot when it's a monolithic slab? And he excavates down 1 ft for the edge. Does that mean the framing, sheathing and siding is at the grade level? Doesn't all wood need to be 8" above grade? Thanks for any help with this. I like this idea in concept.
