Retaining wall/ window well in. But right over the screw piles. Doh!

More silly mistakes at the house. This time the retaining wall installer placed the long side right on top of the three screw piles we drilled for the posts to the balcony.


Now the fall back is to create a top bearing plate on the cap stone of the retaining wall, as it is too much work to re-do the entire wall.

This is why you should always meet your trades-person on site and review what to do before they start. Sometimes they don't bother to ask you a simple question that would have not created a huge headache. * SIGH *
