... It's not permitted for a habital structure. Slabs are used.

I didn't say the whole US was a quake zone but the codes around the country have taken 'notice' of what HAPPENS in quake zones. Certainly, it's not required in SE PA to tie the wall down to the foundation. You'll find post and pier construction along, well, the shore because code requires a footing down to bedrock.

I guess common sense says it's used where it makes the MOST sense. Does that help you???
