Chicken Coop – Retaining Wall First step, flat spot. Unfortunately we don’t have a flat spot where we want the coop. Black box approximately where we want the new coop Remove fence Layout proposed flat spot. ~40 inch drop from high to low spot Dig ditch for base Load of gravel from local quarry, pretty sure I overloaded the truck but seems OK Solid gravel foundational base First load of blocks; pretty sure I overloaded the truck again but seems OK First row was the toughest… spent a long time getting it level Second row was easier, but learned the corner was going to be tricky Back fill and another row Starting to look like a wall! Lots of earth moving to do to get a flat spot, but getting there!
