At the end of November, we were finishing up the retaining walls. I neglected posting a few photos of the work in progress and what the finished before the framing was erected. Here are a few photos of the last week of work.
To give folks an idea of the general size of each of the walls; the walls are 14 meters wide nearly a meter deep and anywhere between 1.5 to nearly 2 meters tall. My apologies, I think in the metric system these days.
