Quote from: Don_P on August 12, 2017, 08:19:34 PMAt the bottom of that pier sits a footing that is wide enough to support the loads from above on the soils below without sinking. Think of a snowshoe, it spreads out the weight to keep you from sinking, same concept.Building codes require piers be engineered and for good reason. You asked a question that revealed a level of understanding, but actually anyone contemplating piers should consider that to be money well spent.
