You will have to check with your local building department. Depths differ all across the country.

Here in MA, I am required/want 12" footings and 4' knee walls. 3' must be subterrainean. That leaves me 12" above the ground.

I asked about an "Alaskan Slab" design just for giggles. My Building Inspector gave me a quick response, "NO!"

I hope this helps.
