    Went to look at a property today that needed to have an extension put onto their existing 6x6 treated wood wall. It is going to be 4 beams high and roughly 12' long. I am really new to doing this kind of work although I know the steps needed to do it. Around here each beam will run around $35. I was thinking around $400 to do it. Does that seem reasonable?

    Youre running to the corner of the house and adding height i take it? Does that include dead men or tie back, any dirt fill etc?

    Correct it will run into the corner of the house and I was going to put in one dead man and it will need a little fill but most from digging the bottom row out will be enough to fill.
