single column brick pier?

8by8by16 concrete blocks sitting on one foot deep concrete pad.
1/4 inch rebar . Bricks filled with concrete. 900 sq ft cabin
On slope with logs for beams. Pier not attached to beam but
To foundation pad. The cabin is about 5ft above grade at
Low end of slope so will use 2 column piers in some places.

Single column seems unstable but I guess not. Some of my "piers" are just vertical logs balanced on slanting bedrock.

piers are not anchored to ground or house



realized i could use stone instead of concrete to keep mice out. its just a footing for the crawl space skirt in places. other places it will support a 4 ft concrete block wall.



a concrete footing a built into the bedrock.



the black railway tie (pier for addition)is leaning against a stone cairn pier. two beams are running close together where the addition joins main house.
