Recently I started brainstorming, trying to find something to help with the downtime in July and August. I bought some construction books and decided on trying to build stone walls. I know a guy who does them, he built one on one of my weekly mowing customers, he told me it took him two weeks to build!, but for the whopping price of $5,000! The wall is beautiful, has just a little cement to hold it together, is about 2.5 feet high, and runs for maybe 75 feet. Anyone have similar luck? Its definately a real skill, but I figure I will use my house as the guniea pig and try building one.
