I'm planning a new house/cottage in Wasaga Beach, (2 floors). Due to the high water table, what is the best foundation construction to use? And what are others using? The house is to be built near the beach.

Hi Herman,

Have you heard of ICF? Insulated Concrete Forming? You may want to consider that as an option. It can be used for the entire build as well if you want the added R-value.
