Question and answer
inportance of foundations to a building
Foundation is the structure that transfers load to the underlying materials that could be soil, rock or even seabed. The foundation holds a structure up so it won't sink to the ground. [ The foundation also holds the structure down to keep it from being lifted or blown away by the elements. The foundation of your house must also be able water-resistant to a point, must be able to resists fungus and insect infestation, natural gases and of course the pressure of the soil that the house stands on. Without a sound foundation, your house could literally sink to the ground or blown
away. Building a new house is not an easy DIY-er task. For one, you need to get an architect for the building plans and permit. The architect will provide you with the necessary floor plans and construction drawings that include foundation and footing designs. You may wonder how the architect came up with the design but don't be. Architects and engineers are well-versed on computing live and dead loads and soil pressure and capacity.
