    off topic but those pics look awfully like some pics that were posted years ago. You wouldnt be the first to do a wall from a walk out basement with the same material & perspective.

    looks like it is level, which is good

    the bricks look pretty retro

    i would never use those bricks again though if I were you.

    Would have to agree, wall looks good just not my taste in material. Not a big fan of the whole "basket weave" wall. Also aren't they supposed to have the matching caps, not the flat face caps?

    Also, now that I look at the wall again, why red?

    there is not a single hint of red on the buildings, which would have complimented the red.

    you get an A in construction, D in color schematics

    HAHA... I actually had to search the Net for that pic. Amazing what some people will build walls out of.

    I could not agree more with you guys. The material is not what i would typically use, but this customer went to the distribution center to look for cheaper material. They could not afford the material that we usually use (belgard celtik wall, keystone century wall, or uni-lock wall material). There for these pictures will not make our brochure. To answer a few questions, the caps are triface, except for the steps, and the color is sheffield which is tan & charcoal. The lighting in the photos is not great.

    Thanks for response
