Q:1. This plan has a foundation type of a slab. I live in Northern Maine where the frost line is roughly 8 feet. Would the foundation plans be modified for the area I live in? 2a. Is the roof system a truss or rafter system? 2b. If it’s a rafter system does it have the option to be a structural ridge; therefore, having a cathedral ceiling?
