Local church wants retaining wall built. There will be a concrete footer. The wall is 360 feet long and 6 feet high. Straight line from beginnin to end and they want the wall built out of sandstone. Never have done a wall this large and could use any help possible to put together a bid for this project. Thanks

What's your local code??? Here in NW Indiana, anything over 4' high requires drawings to be submitted to the bldg dept for approval

What size stone are they/you looking at constructing this with? You are going to be spending a lot of time doing this one.
