Re: What the Heck is this??? Weird foundation
or is it the edge of the slab, and they just did not dig it out square thinking they were saving some cement in the process?
dig down and around it in sections a few feet long, and you could pour some cement in to help the support of the wall. (say in sections so one does not lose the wall into the fresh dug hole)
I know of a few homes or houses where the wall had no footer under it, just built on the dirt,
and it is possible that when they started to measure to build the wall,
either it was "stretched" and just built on the slab of the basement floor, thus ending up on the very edge of the slab, with out any slab under the wall. or some one could have just done it that way from the start,
I would not consider what was done as "NORMAL".
