Adding Additional Piers to Stem Wall Foundation

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I am designing a home that has a stem wall foundation around the perimeter.  I would like to add additional concrete pads/piers that are interior to this perimeter stem wall and which will provide additional support for the beams supporting the house floor.  Can anyone explain how to do this?

In any Architectural software application all objects are "virtual", it is you who "says" what they represent, so piers and pads are merely cylindrical or square objects that you merely say are piers and or pads. These can be pads and piers form the Build Menu or just shapes you custom shape and place to represent piers and or pads.

Solver - I did try searching the forum, and it was of no help in answering this question.  If you know of a post that does address this, could you point me in the right direction?  Thanks.
