    yea they all seemed pleased but I dont think I will work for family anymore. The corner was so tight the whole wall is level its only off by 1/8 inch

    The wall looks great already and i like both ways, but if you split the end of the blocks where your steps are the give them a face matching the front, same with the caps, its adds and extra little something to the wall. However it is a lot of work if you dont have a hydraulic splitter.
