    Thermalite blockwork foundation depth

    @^woody^ Why would it need to be as deep - if i was making it out of timber i would just make a solid concrete base A single skim of thermalite isn't going to need the same as full extension is it?

    Floor Joists via Hangers on Ledger Boards - Both sides?
