Retaining wall # 2

We have the second brick retaining wall built. This wall runs between the garage and laundry. The walls are due to be in filled with concrete this week. After that the drainage will be installed then the following week we should have a slab. Weather permitting!

We have had a wet few weeks in Melbourne, with record rainfalls a few days ago so I hope this doesn't hold the progress up.

On another note my splashback tiles have arrived very early from Italy. I pick them up from the warehouse late next week - I can't wait!

Here are some pics of the second retaining wall. The mortar is a little rough but I suppose that doesn't matter as it'll be hidden under the house. 

This pic shows the corner that they'll be continuing the brickwork along from - this is the bedroom side of the house. 

The second retaining wall as seen from a little down the block. The wall sticks out like that as that will be the workbench in the garage. 

The first retaining wall can be seen down the block with the newer wall to the right of the photo.
