32' x 34' addition


-------------------------------------
Hello everyone. To help with climate concerns I am from Ont. Can. My wife and I are looking at putting on an addition 32' x 34' 1 floor with kitchen and bath. We are hoping to avoid basement and crawlspace. Our existing wall we want butt against is 8" concrete block with a 1 1\\2 A Frame on top. I was thinking about doing the addition on a frost wall with slab floor. We plan on in floor heat. Question is am I on the right track? Down 4" with wall and footing, but how to secure it to block wall? Any help would be great.

Lag screws into pre-drilled holes? Insulate between studs and concrete wall as they do with sill plates on concrete footings.
