Back in January, I posted about a new project we
were starting. To finish fencing in the back yard
and make a more usable space out of this area.
The wall project has started up again.
It's taken this long for the block company
to get the block delivered..... ;(
Two weeks age JS ordered concrete and a pump and
the block layer got the first row set in the footing.
He set the bock in the wet concrete and
made sure it's level. It has to set for
a few days till it is dry.
Last week he came back and put up the wall
to the height we agreed on.
This photo give you a good idea of how much slop
there is to the ground. Each block is 8 inches high.
The block are 8x8x16 inches. We went with a
split face so the wall looks like stone.
After the wall has curd (dried) steel (rebar) will be put in
the holes vertically and the pump will come back
and fill the holes with concrete.
Then we'll bring in dirt to level this area..
I'll keep you posted................. ;D
