What would you like to see? Pictures of the 1600 tons of stone in this project?
You got it all wrong!
He's trying to mimick the statues in this job we did a few years ago!
^^^^^he should have at least been holding a jug pouring water out!
Am I the only one that doesn't understand freestanding pillars? They're overused on this job but your construction skills look good. I guess they're a good location for glare producing light fixtures. When will the job be "completed"?
Looks very nice. Quick ?. What is the reason for running all that block,
through what i am guessing is a stairway, in the photo above with all the fill stone?
^^Cause theres a right way and a wrong way to build things.
I bean in this bidness for 15 years. I can not tell you how many steps we have constructed. We have NEVER ran all that block through the steps. This is a practice that the block manufacturers created in their step instructions so that they can sell MORE block.
Kinda like the instructions on the shampoo bottle say "lather twice".
Kinda like the motor oil industry has lobbied with the car manufacturers to get people to change their oil every 3,000 miles.
You oil DOES NOT need changed every 3,000 miles. You hair does not need lathered twice.
And steps do not need a bunch of block buried like that
All that $$ spent on that project and they left the rusty old wellhead in the middle of it?
Beautiful job rusky
First if you look at the surcharge behind the wall there will be little to no water behind the wall at any one time.
if you build a wall and at anytime see water flowing through that pipe make sure you are standing far away from that wall.
The pipe is not there for drainage it is there to relieve hydrostatic pressure if something goes wrong behind the wall. I don't think in this instance we need to worry about that.
All those pillars remind me of a Walmart parking lot's light poles...........
