In reply to advantages and disadvantages of the slab foundation by justin poitras on February 22nd, 2001 02:22 PM [Go to top of thread]

seeing all this negative stuff on slab foundations. I want to build a garage with 700 sq ft apartment above and the cost of a conventional foundation will be prohibitive at this point. I'm building in new england. I know that slab is used for garages, will this slab support the weight of a 2 story structure above. I imagine any of the mechanicals can be in the garage and not under the slab. Possible to build a knee wall with a slab foundation? would like to eventually add a field stone veneer to the bottom 2 feet of this classic, shingle styled garage. What are estimates for a slab foundation?--thanks, Joe
