Still can't figure out what's going on with that garage floor. Looks like the slab sat on the ledge, like it should, but what are the other pieces sticking out of the side of the wall below that? Is that wood framing supporting the slab on the opposite side? What does he mean wasn't accessible? Was it some sort of drug hidey hole? How did the concrete slide off the rebar (what little there is).

Regardless, though most hate them, this is why there are building codes and City inspections. Cowboy builders doing whatever under the table with no real knowledge of structures.
