I am removing my 16X32x8' in-ground pool, I plan to build a new garage over top of about half of the area where the pool is now. What is the most suitable back fill to use and if packing is involved, in what increments do I need to pack it? Can I pour the footer and foundation in one pour with forms to establish a wider base than the wall? Also, I want to pour a wrap around porch onto my house with a covered roof above it, it will extend 6 ft.out from the house and the finished surface will be just below the bottom row of siding ( aprox. 1 1/2 block up from ground level) the concrete floor will support the overhang trusses above it, is a footer and foundation required to support it or can it be formed from the surface and filled to get the height, what kind of fill and can it be poured against my house foundation blocks? Your help is appreciated.
