I'm a first time self builder, in fact I've never owned a property.
I own a plot of land and last year made the site serviced (electricity, water and formed an access road).
I also levelled off our site as it was on a slight slope and was fortunate enough to have access to a good grade of available rock nearby to infill our site and create a lengthy access road.
I am at the stage where I am trying to get an idea as to how much the project will cost. The one area I'm struggling with is foundations. Our subsoil is clay and our contractor dug down until firm clay was met and then the site was in filled with rock. Does anybody know whether strip foundation trenches can sit within the rock used to infill the site?
Many thanks in advance from the misty isle.
