Foundation Wall

Recommended Posts

I wanted to see what the best way to have the foundation wall line up under my framing as opposed to the pony wall. In our area we just run our brick all the wall down to the footing so I wanted to create this scenario so that my foundation plan lines up correctly.


Thank you

That depends upon the structural makeup of the pony wall in terms of how they then line up. You posted image shows only the outline of the walls but not their material make up. It is obvious that the layers do not align properly but not what the layers are structurally. I commonly opt to align the outer edge of the concrete stem wall with the outer edge of the structural framing, so the dead load above can be directly transmitted to the Earth but lawfully, that is wholly the province of the State Licensed Structural Engineer.
