This is what has been preventing me from riding on my crappy or great bike...
Normal blocks are 18" X 12" X 8" high and about 80 pounds. Corner blocks are 18" X 9" X 8" high and weigh 70#. Will have 18" X 12" X 4" high solid caps when completed. This represents five solid days of work for me and my dad and his Terramite and transit level. Rest of the wall around pool is more trenching, base rock & level, blocks, fill gravel, cap, back fill. Other parts will not be as tall, but stacking is the easy part, we didn't lay a block until the third day of these pictures. Will be about 150 linear feet of wall when done, around 400 blocks and 100 caps in all.
This was the week of the 4th. Most of the wall is now around the pool. 20+ tons of blocks and about 12 tons of gravel/sand/topsoil by the time we are done. And then the plants, irrigation, landscape fabric, and decorative (black granite) gravel in the space between the wall and pool deck.
House projects = crappy.
This has nothing to do with an MV Brutale other than my thought as I write checks for this crap how many bikes I could have for the same $$$.
