    It took a total of about 10 9 hour days with 3-4 workers including excavation. The drainage is a two tear system with dual upper and lower perf pipes running parallel with the house. All are exiting on the downgrade and all tapped together buried and come out about 75ft into the woods below. The footers are about 32'' wide and just as deep along the outer wall. We used 5 yards of concrete, almost 4 cubes of block, 14 boxes of cultured castle stone, 2 pallets of Techo Muro block caps, 1 pallet of escala wall stone, and 2 pallets of 6x6 and 6x9 parisian pavers. It is 98% percent done with just the morter and the lighting that needs to be finished. Will post some finished pics in a day or two.
