Is there any way to calculate water proofing on a foundation wall.


Say the lot slopes to a full walk out in the rear so some of the foudation will be out of the ground.  


is there a way to write a formula to show how much is below grade?


Also is there a way to calcuate stone or brick that would be above grade?


I would have grade lines drawn in on the site plan to correct finished grade.

Have you tried different wall definitions for above and below grade?
