In spite of the batter boards & strings, it takes a very long time to get everything level and right where it needs to be.
I love the fact that Ken doesn’t give a flying crap about liability and expects you to be in the hole & helping as he makes 750lb piers fly above your head. I wouldn’t have it any other way. Great & fun guy, knows his stuff too. “Uh oh Ben, we’re running out of piers.”
Filling it all back up & calling it a day
Thanks to Matt for stopping by unexpectedly and helping for hours.
Level, like an Egyptian. This method is both cheap and very accurate. Note the use of windshield wiper fluid for color & anti-freeze.
Unfortunately I couldn’t come up with a way of doing right angles I trusted, so I ended up getting a laser level; which is a pretty awesome toy and confirmed how accurate liquid leveling was on top of giving me a perfect 90°.
A perfect right angle if ever I’ve seen one.
End of the day, with every mason strings finely adjusted to a perfect & level square. It doesn’t look like much but it took 7 hours to get there.
Unlike the pricy electric laser level, the liquid one can sleep outside.
