concrete footing


I want to pour a footing for a concrete wall. 2' wide,1'thick. Can I use concrete blocks and fill them with concrete? Three across.

If the footing is for a giant dog house or small shed, sure. I am sure local code will not allow it. It might be helpful to know what you are using it for.

Concrete blocks are typically used in a vertical setting on a poured concrete footing for foundation where local code allows it.

And pass an inspection? No. You need solid concrete with rebar. Make a keyway in the footer for the wall.
