  1. Assalamu Aalikum, Hi, I am a new member. I have a plot measuring 30*70 feet. Most of houses being built here (in Rawalpindi) have masonry foundations (a pyramid of bricks on PCC or sometimes the PCC layer has three to four iron rods of size 3/8 or 4/8 in this "PCC" layer. I want to make a raft foundation instead of masonry foundation but the cost seems to be high. I want to ask if I make a raft 1 feet thick and put a single mesh of center to center distance 12 inch. Even this will cost more but if it gives more strength then I want to go for this. Would such foundation more durable and strong?
