The shop is on my parents property and it is more like half family garage and half business workshop. We sub'ed the tree removal, stump grinding, and the foundation laying, but I will take it from there. They are paying for all the work we sub'ed out and the materials. I am building it and furnishing the workshop.

No, this is my work truck. But I am looking at a '95 Chevy Kodiak 6spd 16' dump truck. It has 174,000 miles on it and they are asking $9,950.

I still don't get trenched footings? You see some around here but everything that is within code needs to be froist free and formed mininal 4 but exceptable 6 inch - spread footings need to be 12 in - up to 24 inches wide x 8 - 12 deep. Alot of cement in the ground and alot of backfill. But if it works for ya - I guess.

You can trench a footing and be code legal as long as the trench is the minimum width required for the structure and has the proper frost depth, if applicable. As an inspector myself, I was curious if the footing was stair-stepped and if so, why? We usually only see this with poured walls and sloping terrain.

Moving On!

The code on footings are going to change depending on where you are. Here in Central Virginia we have mostly clay soil (see pictures). Code says that the footer needs to be a minimum of 16" wide and 4" or 6" deep (I can't remember which). The footer for the garage is 24" wide and 6" deep. As I said earlier, due to the slope there are a total of 12 stair steps in the footer. Here are some pictures of the block laying today.

Against code here. Everything has to be formed and our footings are at a min of 42" deep.
