Foundation Height: The foundation of this house is less than 6" above the soil. Foundations should extend to at least 6 " above the finished grade at all points to prevent water penetration. We recommend that this area be re-graded to achieve these clearances while maintaining at least 6" of slope in grade within the first 10 feet away from foundation.
