|Detailed planning for construction|
After the materials and dimensions of the foundation have been planned, the last step before construction of the foundation can begin is to draw a final foundation plan.
Drawing final foundation plane
The plan should include two simple drawings:
- a scale drawing of the footing and foundation wall as they
would look in a cross-section;
- a scale drawing of the footing and foundation wall measurements as they would look if seen from above.
Both these drawings are simple to produce with a ruler. Step-by-step instructions will be found in Appendix 2.
