The picture to the left shows a typical foundation. There is a concrete stem wall on top of a concrete footing. Usually there are 2 horizontal rebars (reinforcing steel) placed in the stem wall. One at the top 1/3rd of the stem wall and one placed in the lower 1/3rd of the stem wall. The top 6 inches of the stem stem wall is normally exposed at the exterior of the home.
