Just completed this retaining wall.

I am simply posting to see what the reply is on the following questions.
1. How much time do you think Iv spent on this wall. Total Men Hours
2. How much would you charge for this through your company installing?
3. General comments or questions.

I saw a picture in a differrent thread but not one here maybe my computer is missing something. If we're talking about the wall in the other thread you posted, that is some nice work and I have no idea where to begin on something like that.

Such a nice house with a terrible style wall. Not saying anything about your work...just Who was the rocket scientist that decided a Lego wall would somehow look good?

Is there a pool on the other side. If so did the wall get done before or after it.

From what I can see it would take about 60 man hours and $14-16K. I also dont like the block, I would have gone with a tumbled block.
