Default Re: How to construct Footers For Foundation

Can't you just do a monolithic pour instead? You'll have your foundation and slab done all at once. Also, call a concrete company or ask a mason in your area what you should do as far as how deep, gravel, dimensions etc., etc. They're very helpful and doubt they will have a problem with giving you advice

"You are going to have to set the first course of block in mud to get it level though, the footing is always off a tiny bit. I would suggest laying the block this will save you the time and money of filling them which is not necessary and give you some time with the trowel that will benefit you later when it comes to the brick work."

You are saying that you would morter between each brick instead of dry stacking, rebar and pouring concrete in the holes?

Would you tar the outside of the foudation? Where do you get hot tar?
