These issues are more pronounced in areas where the superimposed loads are not uniform in nature. Based on the soil and area it is recommended to have a deeper foundation so that it can guard any form of damage or distress. These are mainly caused due to the problem of shrinkage and swelling because of temperature changes. The location of the foundation chosen must be an area that is not affected or influenced by future works or factors. Historic foundation types[ edit ] The simplest foundation, a padstone.

The Ethnographic Open-Air Museum of Latvia Earthfast or post in ground construction[ edit ] Buildings and structures have a long history of being built with wood in contact with the ground. Timber pilings were used on soft or wet ground even below stone or masonry walls.

Stone foundations[ edit ] Dry stone and stones laid in mortar to build foundations are common in many parts of the world. Dry laid stone foundations may have been painted with mortar after construction. Sometimes the top, visible course of stone is hewn, quarried stones.I remain ever grateful t o him.
