cement slab as foundation

Posted by Monique Thériault on September 25th, 2001 07:58 AM

We are building in PEI Canada.. here some people instead of building a foundation build there house on a cement slab... the slab has to be 4 feet deep in order to go lower than the frost line.
Could you tell where and how much insulation we need or we should put the insulation... Around the perimeters of the wall or underneath the wall. Also could you give us an estimate on how much a 68 feet by 36 feet slab would cost.
We are also installing in-floor heating - quote those copper pipes seperately. Just a general idea is what we are looking for. We got two estimate from two different companies and one is 10 000 and the other 24 000 we are trying to understand the why!
