    Afternoon Guys!

    I am knocking down my single story garage at the moment,

    it was built using brick and was double skinned with a very small cavity if any then rendered, proper job knocking it down it was solid.

    With building regs do you think I can re use the footings and just extend them along with the concrete base for the floor inside?

    They seem to deep, I am doing to dig down on the outside to see how deep they were. By new garage is going to be 6x6m in breeze block single skinned with pillars every 3m as per building regs.

    I am going to call them and get them to come out and take a look and see if I can use the original footings as one is on my boundary with the neighbours drive so will save a lot of mess and hassle. Is this something that is common?

    Thanks

    The existing footings will probably be adequate in practice - otherwise your old garage would have collapsed though your BCO will prolly want to see them. Then again he could be a dope ........
