Remodel bump out for kitchen, will this foundation idea work?

Remodel bump out for kitchen, will this foundation idea work?

(OP)
I have a fifteen year old home, with poured wall basement. The project that I have is to cantilever 2x10 floor joists doubled up extending four feet past the foundation wall making an area 4x8 when finished. I would like to brick this. A large window will be used 6x6 feet and 32inch wide side windows. To support the structure could a pier foundation be used? Putting an 8 inch pier in the outer corners, with 1/2 inch re bar run down the pier then bent 90deg. and attached to the existing foundation by drilling four holes on each side and epoxy the re bar to the original foundation. Next forming a concrete beam resting on the piers and held to the original foundation by the re bar epoxyed in place? Also clearing soil away two inches below beams so no frost heave. Piers are 48inch deep. Area is south west Ohio.
                               Thanks Jeff

Jeff,

As I often advise it is worth getting a local structural engineer to look at your problem as we cannot possibly give a meaningful and accurate response without seeing the site.

In principal your idea would work, but would need a detailed design.

Is the brick supported by the 2x10?
What is your joist spacing?
Are you planning on doubling joist at the ends?
Will the existing wall support the additional load?
Are the Joists exposed?
Are you considering the snow, wind, and earthquake loads?.
