Wish I had a picture of this, but it didn’t register until I got home.
sidehill construction with walkout basement/crawlspace. Exposed side of the home has a 1’ footing following the slope of the hillside at about a 30 degree angle the length of the home. Ok…no problem there, however the top of the footing also holds the same angle. Typically I would see a stepped type footing here wouldn’t I? The sill plate follows the angle so each stud is also angle cut to meet the sill.
I tried to locate a detail on this to show the client, but was unable to come up with one.
You can sort of see what I’m talking about but this picture was taken from the outside looking downslope.
