The city requires a 12''x12'' footing since we have bad soil.

You'll have to find out from the city if the footings have to be a seperate pour, or if it can be a monolithic pour,and go according to their requirements,also ask about inspections before pouring.

WHat you're looking to build is a grade-beam/thickened-edge/turned-down slab. Extremely common here. As a matter of fact, we just did a 42' x 60' last week.

The forming and bracing is a little more complicated than a typical slab on grade, but otherwise, it's the same animal..............

Then your good to go,when you get it framed up call for inspection,and after that's done make your pour,just be sure and have plenty of help.
