    Thanks for uploading this. I’ve been wanting to build a garage addition on
    our house which is on a slope. Is there any reason you used sand instead of
    filling it all in with rock? Have you had any settling problems with the
    slab since this install? I’ll keep watching your videos to see, but I just
    so happened to start here.

    If you have not done so, I would suggest you cover each drain pipe outlet
    with a screen to keep little critters out. You know–mice, rats, squirrels,
    chip monks, skunks, etc.

    Why did you place the insulation on the inside of the foundation? Wouldn’t
    it be more efficient to place it on the outside to use the foundation as a
    thermal mass? Plus it would provide a little more protection from frost

    Well, the two long walls are inside the building. So all that concrete is
    acting as a thermal mass. The two short walls are facing outside. What I
    wanted to do was NOT heat the sand mass, because I’m not heating the
    building up to living temps I don’t want to put so much energy into heating
    it up. You generally want a huge thermal mass under the slab if you want
    your building to last through long periods when the heat is off. (like a
    house) :)

    use water to settle the sand tight. Test for good drainage at same time
