Things that I have built with my bare hands.

Day Two:
This is the second stone wall that I ever built... about 7 years ago. Slaved through the winter moving about 25 tons of stone at least 3 times: once to move down to the general area, once to dry fit the pieces, another to actually wet fit the stone. Mixed all the mortar by hand in a wheelbarrow. Etc, etc. I think I worked on this one for somewhere between 4-6 months.

Incredible.

Is this wall in a yard or a public space?

To sit back and look at an accomplishment like that, after all the work you put in, must be one of the greatest feelings in the world. Incredible, indeed!

@carynorton indeed.
@growershower only about 5 feet, but maybe 60 feet long.
@yogibeard I'm a mason, but not a Freemason. Alas.
@ploafmaster @jnonfiction thanks guys!
@wondermade someone's back yard.
@johnnyrebellious it is a great feeling to see accomplishment like that. Different than any other. And to know it will be there potentially hundreds of years from now.

It looks amazing. I restacke Jenga blocks once, and now I had the stupid game. You're more patient than me.
