cantilevered walls over foundation
No, on the 'surface', it won't work. HOWEVER, it may be fine if the load is elsewhere. The best thing to do is check w/the builder. Beyond that, ctc your local Inspector for info. There are too many variables to know what's going on here.
OR, you can hire a New Home, Home Inspector. Yes, that's right. Just as you'd pay for one when you want an inspection of an existing home (before you buy), you can hire an Inspector to monitor various key 'stages' of a NEW home.
Visit ASHI.com for how to find and choose a Home Inspector. After that, negotiate the stages and fee w/them. Be SURE the Inspector you hire 1) has credentials in the Trades, and 2) the one you hire is the one that DOES the inspections. You don't want a 'former basketweaver' to be your Inspector! This, IMO, is $$$ well spent. (The same goes for having a Real Estate Attorney during this process too.)
My best to ya and hope this helps.
