YardPod Foundation Design Options

YardPod foundations can be built by YardPods-approved builders in the Greater San Francisco Bay Area, or Owner-built to specifications provided by YardPods.

The choice of foundation will depend on the slope of the ground and the soil conditions.  It is recommended that an engineer be consulted for all except a level to moderate slope on good ground.  Steep slopes will require engineering.

Concrete Piers

The blocks are placed on top of poured concrete, leveled and connected to the concrete.  Perimeter beams are laid along the two sides and the YardPod floor is placed on top, all are connected.

Concrete Slab

This is the most expensive solution, but can eliminate the need for a YardPod floor.  Note that a concrete floor will not be as comfortable to walk on as an insulated YardPod floor.
