I don't mean to sound rude, but try a search for that using the search feature on this site and you will find some useful information. Additionally try a google search and then click on "images" and I bet you will find the information you need. Good luck!

footers


step 1: pick up yellow pages
step 2: look up contractors
step 3: concrete and foundation contractors
step 4: call 3- 6 contractors for quotes
step 5: hire the contractor you feel most comfortable with their price and skill

step 6: respond to this thread as to how the project turned out

footings arent a diy project if you have no knowledge of how to do formwork. if they arent done correctly you will have to jackhammer up the concrete and reform... and if they are off it makes the next two stages of construction harder to make things level and square
