What is a foundation?

Thursday, February 26th, 2015 by Jessie Schoepflin


Foundation in the dictionary is defined as "the basis or groundwork of anything." So in the most basic of terms the foundation is what the home is built on. In most cases, there is a footer on which the foundation wall/basement wall is built on. A concrete basement floor is then poured. These components make up the foundation of a home.
