concrete footing on slope

strandedpirateApril 15, 2013

What is the proper calculation for the rise of each step for a concrete footing on a slope that will support a free standing wall? The wall will be constructed of residential King size brick that is roughly 9 5/8 x 2 5/8 x 2 3/4 and the wall will be 2 wythe thick if that matters. My thought is its the height of the brick plus the mortar thickness which will be 3/8".

The rise of a step for a wall? Maybe you'd better add a simple sketch that explains what you're building & asking about.
