Heres the deal. I have a friend that is a mason. He just did my foundation for my gararge. Well I found out the hard way That he doesn’t know jack about pouring walls. My problem, I have a 10x24 detached gararge. My plan called for a T footing. 8 inches wide x 30 inches deep with a base footing of 6 high x 16 wide. Well he poured a Trench footing 11-12 inches wide x 36 deep. With a 6 inch slab. Anyone know is this will pass inspection? The soil at the base is rocky and sandy. My planner said the gararge has a load of 600lb per SF. All the cement was 3500psi. I am confused. How can I figure load to width of base footing if this will be ok?
I live on Long Island New York, Suffolk County.
