The foundation is probably the most important part in the construction of a house, it supports the entire structure of the home which is why it needs to be very solid. In Quebec your house and its foundation will be exposed to many elements including frost and ice and it is important that they are solid enough to resist these factors.
Our pods are relatively small but they still require a sturdy and solid foundation. You also need a foundation that is adapted to resist Frost Heave and Ice Lenses which is a disruptive environmental factor in Quebec. Most importantly you will need a drainage system that moves water away from the home towards a sewer drain or a drainage pit to avoid weakening the ground under and around the foundation.
