Default Block work

Does anyone know of someone that does cement block work?
We need to block off a window in the basement. About 6 blocks need to be cemented in. And I have discovered that I should have never attempted this. lol.

Don't worry there's still two tires on the ground.

We did it our self. Over 6 hours to put the 6 blocks in. Then a few hours clean up that night. And more clean up the next day.

sounds like my heater install, I'm 15 hours into it and it should probably only have taken 4 hours LOL

Hopefully I'll finish it up tonight.

Iím dreading block work myself. I have to jack up my garage and repair the foundation before I have more issues. I still have a ton of grading to fix first.

Sometimes being a homeowner sucks.

Just like my upstairs bedroom remodel. It should have taken a month or two but it's been 27 years and I'm still not done.

Are you aging the materials and furnishings so it looks like original construction?
