Hello, I'm thinking of adding a room to my home. The home has a conventional brick foundation wall. The addition will be 8x8x16 block. Will changing material hurt the value much? I plan to dress it up with Azaleas or something similar to hide the change of material. Also, what means are required to tie into the existing footing, and foundation wall? I'm in SC if that matters....
You would need to conform to the Building guidelines in the area you live. The specifications would be spelled out in the plans you file with the building dept.
This is not a project you just, "wing".
