A block wall for Arylane

Arylanes` friend Joyce recomended she call.

Her home is on a sandstone hill and she was concerned that the wet year that she heard predicted would become a problem for her hill.

There were two existing walls at the base of the hill. My job was to build a retainig wall in the ten foot space between the other walls.

First I dug the footing, built the form and set the metal. Next I built a chute to slide the concrete down a steep hill. Once the chute was complete I simply poured the concrete down the chute and moved it around in the form.

With the footing complet and after a few days to cure it was time to set the block. This went smoothly, with the only challenge being a pipe whose path went rite through the wall.

The challenges were overcome and the wall turned out great.

Thanks for the work Arylane 🙂
