How close to a house corner can a walk-out bulkhead be?
1924 2+ story single family house with a poured concrete foundation.
I want to change an existing basement walk-out because it interferes with a kitchen layout. The best place to relocate it, with minimum disruption to services , etc., is the rear corner of the house, starting about a foot from the corner of the house.
This location was suggested by an architect who visited the house. I questioned whether a bulkhead could be located so close to the corner; he said it would be fine.
In gathering estimates, I was told by the owner of a company specializing in excavating and building bulkheads that you can't have a bulkhead that close to a basement corner, due to the load on the foundation at that point. He thought it was against code.
The architect says no, it's not against code, and it's fine.
Who is right? Code aside (which I can research), is putting a bulkhead in the corner a good idea or not?
