Hi sir,

Sasriakal

My plot is already 2.5 feet below the ground, I asked my contractor to go 2 feet depth but his labour by mistake excavated upto 3+ feet depth on one side and now my contractor said that we will excavate parallel side upto 2 feet. is there will be any imbalance?

regards
Rohit

Dear Sharma
  I Think you have excavated one side 3' deep and want to now excavate 2' depth for remaining foundation of walls.You should construct foundation, it is no big problem.

In my opinion it is better to place foundation on same level to avoid unequal settlement.

Take either 2 feet or 3 feet level for foundation, but has to be at same level.

       You should fill 1' lean  cement concrete  in deep foundation and make the level same and proceed further.

Thank you for your prompt reply



So I have decided for 3feet depth on parralel side and back side also. And foundation for internal walls like partition walls or other walls inside the boundary 2 feet deep. Is it okay? 
In other words, 3' deep foundation for boundary walls and 2' deep foundation for internal walls.  Tell me If i'm wrong please

Dear Sharma
       For boundary wall it is not necessary to take same level as boundary have not bear much load and take one 3' already excavated and other 2' for boundary no any harm. For building portion you are taking same level and that is OK.
