Inspection Education & Training This is a general forum for inspectors to discuss their educational experience, and to ask questions of InterNACHI's Education Committee. This forum is dedicated to the memory of InterNACHI member and educator Gerry Beaumont. Gerry was an avid proponent of education for inspectors and will be sorely missed.

Default frost protected shallow foundation

Hello, am I the only one to think that the image representing a fpsf in the attic and interior inspection course is not accurate? The image doesn't seem to represent a fpsf... no wing insulation and I've never heard of a fpsf built of cmu?

I just looked at the drawing you are talking about and while it is not a build to drawing it does capture the essence of what a fpsf is suppose to be [an insulated foundation]. Yeah, its missing a footing and wing insulation. I did a brief google search for CMU's in a fpsf and did in fact find a least one actual under construction image using them in the wall.
