Short Frost Walls / Frost-Protected Shallow Foundation
I was suggested to me that there would be significant saving by doing a short frost walls, about 16 inches below existing ground.
I presume they are referring to a frost protected shallow foundation but don’t these require foam on the exterior of the foundation plus a skirt about 12″ below ground around the perimeter?
