house foundations

I live in an area where the freeze line is 18 inches. I need a 30' by30' brick foundation that will be 8 foot high on the low end and 12 foot high on the other. An ideas as to the cost per linear foot or any other way to calculate? thanks

Do you mean block foundation?
Call a few local contractors and get estimates. This works better if you have plans. I know I wouldn't estimate it if you didn't. It would be a waste of time.

here's a rough estimate since you need a number,,, brick's different that block & can be more OR less expensive,,, budget $1.00-$ 3.80 per foot ( linear, sq, or cubic ) some may calculate by weight but that's always taken me too long

I would also recommend getting some quotes from your local contractors.
