Pouring Cement Wall Foundation Footers for an Off Grid Shed, Cabin or Home

Alaska – All concrete block walls, both structural and non-structural,  require a solid, poured concrete footing. Concrete with high cured strength and rapid strength gain is recommended for pouring footing construction with cement.

All poured concrete/cement footings should be at least twice the width of the concrete blocks used. Standard 8” x 8” x 16” blocks would require a 16” wide footing. Make sure the footing depth extends below the frost line, and check local building codes for construction requirements in your area.

Tie rods should be set a minimum of 6” into the concrete footing for load bearing concrete block walls. Rebar should be placed in every other masonry core to provide structural support.
