    "Yes if there is enough room and to have it tied into the other wall. if there is no footing down to build the wall on you will have to put one down to build the wall on top of it. Plus tie it into the other wall your building up against."

    "This question is for the engineer who designed the actual foundation if you don’t have his details you have to get another engineer to check the existing foundation to see if it supports the load you want to put on it
    I hope this helps"
