Wow great looking wall, wish I saw more stuff like that around here.

Are you going to be able to see the wall at all? It seems like it faces a forest?

Man, that looks extremely tedious. I'm Hoping your getting paid good for it.

That and judging by the footer along the run, it looks like you've got a long ways to go.

Yes it is very tedious, and we do have a ways to go as of today we have that pictured section capped, and no currently it will not be visible for the client as it faces the neighbors house, this wall is one of 3 identical to it on the property that are going to be constructed.

How are you getting the joints so tight? Are you just lining up stones and mixing and matching to get them tight or are you using rock-hammers and chisels to get them to where you need the joints to be?

Not to answer his question for him gardens but you need a bench grinder on site to keep chisels sharp, time lots of it and a stone grinder to feather and back cut and shim every stone to maintain the very low gap tolerance. it is slow tedious work that requires homeowners with very deep pockets and patients as it goes slow at times. not to mention talent and experience. that is a big money wall where I am.

No Doubt, that is a huge money wall anywhere. But, I think it is safe to say even the untrained eye of most homeowners can appreciate the preciseness and detail going into each and every piece of stone. The guy is a master mason.

yep takes a person with solid mental discipline to stand their all day every day for weeks not a job for a stone mason with ADHD

We use chisels, grinders, chop saws, backhoe, lots of time...

Looks Awesome!!! Keep up the good work. I'm just bummed it's not street-side for a whole lot of potential clients to see.
