    See table R403.1 for minimum footing width

    6-inch stem wall on the 8x16 footing with garage slab resting on footing? So... the stem wall is at the side of the slab. Stem wall has a green plate attached with a studded wall supporting the garage ceiling....is that correct?

    Will CJ's work for the floor of the second story or need to be changed or supported?

    Pictures at 11:00?
