Re: Garage addition
From my reading its an 8 foot deep footing, 18" wide, that will get below the frost line just about anywhere
Engineered stamped plans is normal, I have always had to submit stamped plans, its to make sure someone whom is a certified professional engineer has reviewed the plans to meet building codes
Now your breaking ground, let the cost over runs begin!
I doubt the the footing is oriented that way, the elevation of the footing can raised or lowered to whatever depth required to be below the frost line. If the OP is referring to the stem wall that sits on top of the footing then I can buy that.

in this case the engineer had two sets of plans, the unstamped lite version and the stamped ones.
