Notice the cross member here as they gradually turn. Getting the 1/2 plywood on it took a lot of bending and just a few screws!

Some of you might be familiar with the MC B&B Man Castle that we built in the mountains of Arizona. We sold that place this past summer and moved to the Smokey Mountains where I am building a new Man Castle

This is the backside of our new place, on the side of a hill, not a lot of room.



A big time amount of Earth work and tree removal was undertaken.













Extensive form work.





67 1/2 yds of concrete later.

Well its 7' by 2' and has studs every 15" under the work surface and low shelf, theoretically it could hold A LOT of beer. I'll get back to you after proper testing

BTW, we saved ALL the sawdust and threw in some play sand with some garage floor paint. The texture is awesome!

Beautiful, Dean. Are you backfilling between the retaining wall and the hill?

Yes, it has been backfilled. Just prior to the back filling, it was coated with a thick tar like substance then a heavy visquene a french drain all along the wall then a layer of gravel then backfilled and packed. The wall is 10" thick in this area and 8" in other areas.





The back retaining wall is on a poured with rebar footer.
