    Walls

    Walls, no not ice cream the things that apparently give you privacy and slow down bad people from entering your property.

    Here they build to construction house grade. I have a back plot that needs to be raised to about 1m-1.3m

    I have looked at PCC precast but was wondering if anyone knew of any other methods for retaining walls?

    As I mentioned the ground is only going to be 1-1.3m higher than the original ground with good water drainage.

    Any help would be most appreciated.

    Cheers

    Ben, look in construction for Carrabow's build. He did a massive retaining wall in that.

    thanks found it.

    for anyone else http://teakdoor.com/construction-in-...atanaburi.html (Rural Surin just SW of Ratanaburi)

    It seems that he just made a cantilever by connecting the bottom rebar to the vertical posts. Using brick instead of block. I wasnt sure if it was one or 2 runs with a gap in which the concrete is also poured?

    I have about 70 meters line to cover, and if anyone has anything further please feel free to let me know?
