density as detennined by ASTM D-1557. All fill below structures should be placed and compacted as detailed in the attached Appendix. Prior to pouring concrete footing excavations should be cleaned of any slough, loose soil, or debris. Footing excavations should be compacted as detailed in the attached Appendix.
Foundations designed and constructed as described herein are not anticipated

adjacent column above settlement
estimates are based in moisture content
on the assumption the site soils will not be allowed to increase and that the site grading, drainage, earthwork, and landscaping
recommendations presented in this report will be fully implemented.
The site soils are slightly collapsible if allowed to increase in moisture content. If the soils supporting footings are allowed to increase in moisture content, additional settlement of 14 inch per foot of wetted soil could occur.
Foundations should be designed and constructed to tolerate the above settlement. Foundations should be designed by a qualified structural engineer.
To reduce the affect of settlement on the structure, we suggest that all stucco be fiberglass reinforced. Periodic control joints should be utilized in the stucco particularly at window and door comers. Periodic control joints should also be utilized in masonry walls.
