need some pointers


I've been in the construction biz for a while,but only like smaller things(roofing,siding,decks,and some remodeling).I just got a job which is a 24'x24' addition with a 6' porch.I know I'm just being parinoid,but that's just me.The existing house is built on a slab and they want me to build a foundation,so they can walk into the addition without steps,no biggy.Here's my thing.It's on the side of their house and I'm trying to figure the best way to tie it in.Also,I'm in SC,so what should be the footing depth and width here,they're putting a cinder block foundation up?I know it don't sound like it,but I do know this stuff,but now that it's on me,I'm nervous as s(*&* and I want it to be done right.If it were coming off the front or back of the house/roof line,I'd be ok,but off the side of the house just confuses me like crap.I'd really appreciate any help on this even some pics of jobs being done in this matter would be much appreciated
