Slab-On-Grade INSULATED Foundation (NO Concrete?!) - Part 2

In this Video I’m visiting a House built two years ago by Builder Jake Bruton where he Insulated over Compacted Gravel, then floated the subfloor on top. It looks like a typical Slab On Grade foundation ,but in fact there is NO Concrete under your feet! I did a similar design on my house under construction and it was really cool to see how this house is performing two years later. Big thanks to Architect Steve Baczek who came up with this design! Jake did a 4 part series with the details on this Slabless Slab Foundation here: https://www.protradecraft.com/insulated-subfloor-over-slab-grade-complete-series

Here’s a Fine Homebuilding article on this concept: https://www.finehomebuilding.com/2019/12/18/a-concrete-free-slab-on-grade-foundation
