footings for posts in a basement
This is the same hosue as the other post right before this, but a different question.
They want some new posts put in to support the stairs going down to the basement. Its a sump pump type deal in the basement. I figured i'd just get some p.t. 4x4 posts and put them in concrete footings on the bottom, those premade ones. However theyre shaped kinda pyramid like. I usually put brackets down on things like that, like L brackets, but a pyramid is obviously the wrong shape for that. this isnt really a big deal question but I was just wondering if anybody had any recommendations for that. should I maybe pour footings instead, just right onto the basment floor?
I definitely dont want to just have the posts right on the basement frloor because its clearly a wet basement.
