I have a 16×16 wood shop that I would like to add a 9×6 addition. The 9 foot length will be attached to the building. The framing will be no problem but I am not sure how to deal with the foundation. The wood shop has a monolithic slab and there is a drop off in the grade behind the shop. The drop off is about one foot down for every four foot out. The building is in Florida and sits on pure course sand. How should I set up the foundation for the new addition. Where can I find information that will tell me how to do it right.
In the first episode of FHB House Kansas, Travis and Joe of Catalyst Construction walk through details of their foundation walls.
