The foundation absorbs much of the stress of the mattress set and also provides added comfort and support. For maximum value, always purchase a matching set (see boxspring).
Masonry wall that rests on top of the footing used to support the main structure of the house.
The lower part of a structure that transmits the load to the earth.
The entire masonry substructure below the first floor or frame of a building, including the footing upon which the building rests.

a stone, block or concrete system of walls build upon, or up from, a footing (usually poured concrete) so as to form a structure which supports the above ground main framework of the house
a substructure including masonry walls, piers, footing, piles, grillage and similar construction, which is designed to transmit the load of any super-imposed structure to natural soil or bed rock

Walls of masonry or concrete on which a structure is built (normally below ground level).
The compact sand, gravel, hard clay or rock upon which the footings rest.
The structural supports for the boilers, main engines or turbines and reduction gears are called main foundations. Supports for machinery space auxiliary machinery are called auxiliary foundations. Deck machinery supports are called, for example, steering engine foundation, winch foundation, etc.

means the base or footing on which a memorial is installed.
The surface and the natural material beneath it on which a dam and appurtenant features rest.
Underpinnings of a wall.
the brick, stone, concrete block, or poured concrete that rests in the ground. The foundation provides structural support for the structure and also keeps water, soil, animals, and some insects from entering the basement or crawl space.
The vertical structure which supports the first-floor construction and which is partially located below grade.

This is the underlying base, support, or substructure of a resource.
in buildings, that portion of the wall which is below the first floor
The soil or rock upon which a structure rests.
The foundations are the earth on which sits the footings of the building above. Foundations are classified into groups of plasticity type and load bearing capabilities. Reactivity of the earth to water and movement are vital in determining the type of footing designed for the building. A geotechnical and structural engineers determine the soil classification and footing design.
A solid structural element upon which supports a larger structure.
The supporting structure for a building.
The part of the structure upon which all other construction is built.
The portion of a building that has the sole purpose of transmitting structural loads from the building into the earth.
The bottom component of a sleep set that transfers and distributes the weight of the mattress.
the concrete slab beneath the property, which holds the property in place.
The base upon which the greenhouse is set. This can be made of wood, concrete or concrete block.
The part of a building which supports the superstructure, usually below ground level.
The solid structural element upon which a structure is built.
A block, brick, stone, or concrete wall on which the house's framing is built. It is mostly below grade.
Lower supporting walls, columns or slabs on which the structure is built.
A Features field to indicate the type of foundation. (Concrete Perimeter, Pillars/Post, Slab, etc.)
A base that supports the mattress. It absorbs the weight and pressure applied to the bed.
The base upon which a structure stands. Typical foundations include Concrete Slab, Crawl Space, and Basement.
a slab-on-ground foundation consists of the concrete slab cast integrally with the concrete stiffening beams and the soil in which and on which the foundation sits
The vertical concrete wall that surrounds the perimeter of the house.
The parts of a building, which transmits and distributes the load to the ground via a footing.
Your oven will sit on a standard concrete pad. Make sure you build your foundation slightly larger than your Oven Stand, in order to support your finish material, and forms you will use to install our Insulating Hearth. Consider sloping the foundation just slightly to the front of the oven, to keep water from standing in your wood storage area underneath the oven. Your hearth and Oven Floor will be level.
The base upon which the structure or a wall rests; usually masonary, concrete, or stone.
A structure to carry brickwork on to soil or earth
The earth supporting building elements.
Walls, partially below-ground, that support the weight of the building above and enclose the basement or crawl space.
A wall that something is built on or supported by.
A home foundation is that part of the structure that is in direct contact with the ground. The foundation transmits the weight of the entire home and itself to the supporting soil.

is the supporting portion of a house structure, which is usually below ground level.
The support structure of a house.
The soil, subsoil or rock upon which a structure is supported.

The lowest part of a wall or series of piers on which a structure is built. The base upon which the structure or wall rests; usually masonry, concrete, or stone, and generally partially underground.
The substructure on which a building rests.
The footing and below grade level walls upon which the upper part of the structure rests.
WALLS SET ON FOOTINGS THAT SUPPORT A STRUCTURE. THE JOISTS OF THE FIRST FLOOR ARE TYPICALLY SET AT THE TOP OF THE FOUNDATION WALL. WHAT YOU SEE IN THE BASEMENT OR CRAWL SPACE IS THE FOUNDATION WALL. THE FOUNDATION WALL IN A WELL BUILT STRUCTURE SHOULD BE AS CLOSE TO PERFECTLY SQUARE, PLUMB, AND LEVEL AS POSSIBLE.

the solid ground or base on which a building rests.
The substructure which supports a building or other structure.
The stonework below the ground that supports the entire structure.

A foundation is a structure that transfers loads to the ground. Foundations are generally broken into two categories: shallow foundations and deep foundations.
