    Looking at that wall make me want to get into things of that nature. Did you learn from working from someone else or did you learn by going for it through smaller jobs.

    Nice curves! They really make the wall, don't they.

    Not trying to steal your thunder, but later on, I'll post a few pics of my first "BIG" job from last fall. It will show how we incorporated the stairs into the wall.

    Stay tuned....

    Some basic wall building experience was used but for the most part it was new for us. Mainly we read up on techniques and requirements. Then we asked a bunch of questions from experienced people.

    After that we put together a soild plan on paper. Once we felt confident in our design we started the project. We learned alot along the way, but it could have been alot worse if we went in blind folded.

    Here's a wall we did last fall. Two neighbors, both needed new walls. One had an old mortared brick wall that was falling in the lake, other had a couple telephone poles stacked on each other. I think this is a great option for the stairs -- keeps the curves and is built into the wall. Unfortunately I can't take credit for the idea. It's right in the Allan Block literature.

    I'll post a couple.
