    I think after a certain post count you are immune to most critiquing. You only need to simply post a job here and there to maintain your validity in the industry. Seriously though what is there to critique other than a lack of erosion control below, safety barrier above, hard hats, and an apparent lack of concern for the health of the forest trees in the background. It's only an excavation job at this point. Any other pics are not the topic of discussion.

    lol... I knew it was only a matter of time.

    Off topic, but Green Acres - that job you posted isn't in Indiana, is it?

    No it's not "T" shaped. Yes the core is filled with gravel.

    If you're cleaning gutters on the roof of a 3 story house you will use a long long ladder.

    If you're cleaning gutters on the roof of a rancher you will use a short ladder.

    I buy Cornerstone direct from the manufacturer. Never from a dealer. The manufacturer is a dealer as well, with primary revenue deriving from manufacturing.

    Engineer specs are your typical specs. And I mean typical.

    The engineer I use would have had longer grid lengths and would have speced more block planted below grade buried in the ground.

    The block has a locking bump built into the bottom, no?
