Foundation Question

3907 Views 20 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  tgeb
I have a question for you foundation experts out there. How long can a foundation sit after it's completed before it needs to be framed. Is there some kind of time limit or can the foundation stay freestanding for any amount of time . Thanks for your response in advance

Pretty sure it can sit forever, but you might end up with a swimming pool.

I do think you have to wait something like 2 weeks before back filling though.
