It all depends on where you live. I'm from the
northeast and I hardly see slabs for foundations
because of thr freeze/thaw cycle here. If your from
the south where there is little chance for freeze/
thaw the slab will work fine. However if your from
the north you must build a foundation with footings
below the frost line. One advantage if your from the
north and must build a foundation, you can build a crawl
space and save about 1/3 fo the cost of a full foundation.
