    Isn’t the middle bearing wall footing supposed to be right below the slab and not taken down to the 5′ frost line?

      Yes, You are correct. The interior footing should be flush with the slab.

    you show the slab drawn above the grade line……is this correct? or should it be directly below line??

    the slab is drawn above grade……is this correct? or should it be level with grade?
