Cinder Block Perimeter Foundation


Hello

Can anyone suggest a good site or book that describes installing a simple cinder block perimeter foundation? I'm looking to put in a simple foundation for a free standing greenhouse. I'm not finding much on the internet on my own.

Thanks
Brian

Cinder Block Perimeter Foundation


anytime you bld in upstate ny, you have to consider frost depth,,, that'll take a slight sub-surface footer outta the game,,, might consider piles ( submerged columns ) as an alternative,,, if you're keeping heat in the ground, frost won't be a problem,,, if its a very small ( indifinitive ) bldg, conc slab might be a good alternative.

our local binghamton greenhouses had no foundations & cinder floors.
