    Fifth stone from the right, middle row needs to go a little to the left. Lol

    Just kidding. Looks great!

    Wall looks good from what I can see. Might want to consider a better camera though. I do alot of dry-stacked flagstone walls and must say the profit margin is great. I've seen alot of stone work from so-called "stonesmen" and in my opinion either you have it or you don't!! I guarantee the customer loved it didn't they? A little advice take your time and don't rush it...let the customer feel that they are getting their money's worth and that they've hired an artist. You will have to play around with the pricing. My advice is price it a little on the high side..you can always come down a little and still make a profit. Keep up the good work.

    P.S. What did you charge??

    I know around my neck of the woods i have heard of doubling the cost of the stock so if it cost you $3,000 for the stone ,blocks and pegs etc then it would be a $6,000 job unless there was more work involved.
