    Recently finished this wall. Versa-Lok standard units were used, along with the 18 inch cap. Wall is 112 feet end to end, at the base. A little over 4 foot tall at the top of the cap.

    Im just curious as to what some of you guys would charge for this wall.

    Those caps are way different then ours. Helpful tip - when stepping up or down split the block and caps so a textured face shows on the ends.

    As for price, ballpark $10-15,000.

    way too busy to even think about what i would price it to be. We dont know length, height, yadda yadda yadda. Maybe $47,432???

    But not too busy to notice those hideous little cuts on the corners......

    Do you have trouble reading? He told you the length and the height. Maybe if you took your head out of your........nevermind

    Many factors but if I had to ballpark(which I wouldn't if I was submitting a proposal) around 1/3 of your price.

    Looks good, mostly. I don't like those little filler pieces on both sides of the steps. If you start at the steps and work your way out you can finish without those. Also, with versa-lok if you split the blocks for the ends you don't have to have the pin slots showing.
    As far as price, there is nowhere near enough info given, but I would say at least $10,000.

    Around here in the neighborhood of $10-$12K as long as excavation and access is descent.

    The reason I used the small filler pieces near the steps was to keep the blocks at the correct bond. DVS, thanks for the compliment on the corner cuts by the way.

    How am I supposed to keep the blocks at the correct offset without cutting some smaller pieces? I'm somewhat new to walls, so I'll gladly take tips and advice.

    Oh yea forgot to ask, STL Ponds, are you located in the Eureka area? I saw one of your trucks going through downtown Eureka the other day when I was building this wall.
