Comprehensive guide from the U. Oak Ridge National Laboratory: The use of FPSFs for unheated buildings provides the azce advantages in unheated and semi-heated structures attached to a heated structure, such as an attached garage or front porch, although the IRC specifically disallows this unless designed by a professional engineer in compliance with ASCE As the voice of the U.

Alternate view of unheated building section using FPSF. So the combination of an insulating blanket with proper sub-grade preparation, which includes no frost-susceptible soils, often conspires to make this technology more expensive than a conventional foundation.
