HOW TO BUILD A WALL
...as done by Builder Emma Shea

Dig a trench

taking out as much dirt as possible.
Get help if you need it.
Sometimes it is very heavy!!

Grab a bag of sand to layer in the trench
...my helper says this gives the bricks a level place to sit.


Smooth out your sand
Make sure your bricks are level.

Flatten them out if needed.
Measure
Chisel away the extra bits
Stack the bricksPut the dirt back
Voila'!!! a wall
Now, if she could just come up with a landscaping plan!
