Structures such as car garages, sheds, cottages, and additions built by Meta Steel Buildings in Calgary use floating slabs as their foundations. Slabs of this type have no frost footings, only a thickened, reinforced perimeter. The floating units have therefore been referred to as "monolithic" since they are allowed to move over the frost line. It is also possible to minimize frost movement with insulation.
The floating slab method is an economical way to construct a foundation. Floating slab foundations are an incredible choice for sheds.
