A reader's excavation question: what size footings?
Shawn G from Broadstairs UK asked what size footings to use.
Great site you have there. I have just started to build an extension on the back of my house. Plan A was it was going to be a glass conservatory between 2 existing brick built walls.. Plan B now is brick built side, glass front and a tiled roof. I have just started to dig the footings. My question is how deep and wide should they be. Also at the base of the footings do i lay a layer of hardcore.
