i am sorry, you misunderstood...the existing garage slab is on grade, but they want to convert the garage into a living space that is flush with the finished floor of the house. so my new floor joists (in the garage) are going to be about three feet above the garage slab on grade.
so my question was: when i fill in the existing garage door opening (i was planning on blocking it up to match the height of the rest of the foundation around the house), how can i seal the joint between the existing slab and the new block to best keep water from seeping under the new block?
i was thinking that i could run flasing from the interior top of the cmu (under the new sill plate), down the exterior side of the cmu until it reaches the slab at grade....but what is the best way to end it at grade?
