    Hey all,

    This will be my first wall. It is located at my home and will be replacing a cinder block style with no drainage behind it. Current wall is broken in sections and leaning in others. I will be removing the old and installing a new wall with 12 degree 8x18 Allan Block. I have attached the measurements and am hoping to get some help with materials figures. Thanks!

    Well, multiply by 12(for total inches in lenght), and divide by 18 to get how many you need across, then divide by 8 going up (you have to remember though, you will be burying 6-10inches of block below grade also and you also have the possibility of stepping up/down to go with the grade(easier to step up). If you are still having problems, PM me and I can help you out.
