Plan coming together

It’s a good feeling when you get to the end of the wall and the blocks all line up with the ones below! :)

I had worried that once I put the stem bars in place (which are all 2.0m high) that I’d have to make up some sort of scaffold or platform so I’d be able to get the blocks over the bars and into place.

Turns out it’s not that bad - the blocks must weigh north of 5kg each but I can pretty easily just lift them up over my head and guide them over the bar and onto the wall. I’m sure it looks a little comical, I probably look like Clyde (the orangutan out of the Clint Eastwood movies Every Which Way …) raising his arms in victory after crapping in a police cruiser :)

Anyway, I digress…
