Double wall over stepped concrete wall
Hi my name is Matt, from zone 5a in upstate NY.
I’m designing/building a PGH on a challenging lot, requiring a stepped frost protected shallow foundation
I’ve attached my CAD details & the exterior elevations. The detail I’m most concerned with is where our double stud wall meets 8″ concrete walls above the slab.
Could anyone advise how they would handle these areas?
Some of these detail notes are incomplete as I’m working on them now, but they should clearly convey the situation for the framed basement walls.
The slab is the same level throughout the basement.
