19:55 <CoderForLife> hey zombie67

19:55 <CoderForLife> moo efc

19:56 * CoderForLife checks out the county building permit online report

19:56 <Soul_keeper> hello

19:57 <CoderForLife> no building permit issued last week; so much for getting it in before he went on vacation

19:57 <CoderForLife> probably why he won't call me back on status

19:59 <CoderForLife> but I'm not the suspicious type

20:00 <xcamel> jaded maybe?

20:00 <CoderForLife> ya think?

20:01 <CoderForLife> also they told me that zoning permission wasn't required

20:01 <CoderForLife> step 1 of permit checklist - "Zoning Permit or Letter of Approval from township or village zoning office"

20:02 <PovAddict> you apply for the right side of the 'or'?

20:03 <CoderForLife> I'm sure he didn't go to the township office before going to the county

20:03 <CoderForLife> wow - I am sooo glad I have this in "expert hands"

20:03 <CoderForLife> I wonder what kind of wall The Three Stooges are going to build

20:19 <Didactylos> I've designed lots of retaining walls. What sort is it?

20:21 <PovAddict> huge one

20:21 <Didactylos> Define "huge"?

20:22 <CoderForLife> 60 feet long, 24 feet high

20:22 <CoderForLife> less huge that it used to be - the "economy" model

20:22 <Didactylos> That's certainly not small.

20:22 <Didactylos> Is that the effective height, or the total height?

20:22 <PovAddict> &echo [math convert 60 feet meters] meters long, [math convert 24 feet meters] meters high

20:22 <Romulus> 18.288 meters long, 7.3152 meters high

20:26 <CoderForLife> 1440 square feet

20:26 <Didactylos> What's the retained height? The difference in the finished ground levels?

20:27 <CoderForLife> that is total wall dimensions - the highest part out of the ground will be 14 feet, with 10 feet buried

20:27 <CoderForLife> 1 degree slope on top of the wall - 6 degree segmental block

20:27 <PovAddict> 40% buried?

20:27 <CoderForLife> nearly flat and nearly vertical

20:28 <CoderForLife> don;t talk about my finances that way! =)

20:28 <PovAddict> lol!

20:28 <Didactylos> I kind of guessed. 24 feet retained would be.... expensive.

20:29 <CoderForLife> of a 24 foot wall, 10 feet will be below grade, socketed in bedrock

20:29 <CoderForLife> I'll need to put a handrail/fence on top

20:29 <Didactylos> Bedrock does make life easier for the poor engineer.

20:30 <CoderForLife> we dug a test hole, and found footing at about 7 feet down

20:30 <CoderForLife> then we dig 3 feet into that to lay the base of the wall

20:30 <Didactylos> Did you say blockwork?

20:33 <Didactylos> Gabion walls work best for huuuuge outside retaining walls.

20:40 <Didactylos> But most of the walls I worked on were either highway retaining or incorporated into foundations. Can you say "fun with reinforced concrete"?

20:41 *** nickuwo has quit IRC

20:42 <CoderForLife> Allan Block segmental retaining wall

20:43 <CoderForLife> he's my contractor's web site http://www.outdoorenvironmentsinc.com

20:43 <Romulus> Title: Home (at www.outdoorenvironmentsinc.com)

20:43 <CoderForLife> here's*

20:44 <xcamel> Don - there is one going up near me that is all cut granite..

20:44 <xcamel> I can't even imagine the cost.

20:44 <CoderForLife> he'll also be putting in a nmew patio for me

20:45 <CoderForLife> cut garnite??  omg

20:45 <CoderForLife> er granite

20:45 <xcamel> 4" thick, 18" deep, 24" long

20:45 <xcamel> key stacked

20:45 <CoderForLife> sum-b

20:46 <xcamel> eee-yeah.

20:46 <CoderForLife> what are they building, the next Grand Coulee?

20:46 <xcamel> wall looks about 54" high

20:46 <xcamel> and about 60' long

20:46 <CoderForLife> huh

20:47 <xcamel> $OMG

20:47 <CoderForLife> LOL

20:47 <xcamel> eureka on tonight

20:48 <CoderForLife> excellent

20:48 <xcamel> oh.. looks like I'm finally getting my RR business class here..

20:48 <CoderForLife> hey good news

20:48 <xcamel> if they ever come to hook it up...

20:48 <xcamel> sadly, I had cable 20 years ago...

20:48 <CoderForLife> we've talked about that for here

20:48 <CoderForLife> I have Turbo RR ATM

20:49 <xcamel> When I first moved here, the cable company was owned by a "person" who positively hated my guts.

20:49 <CoderForLife> what do you think about the walls, Didactylos?

20:49 <xcamel> and swore as long as he was alive, I'd never get cable.

20:49 <CoderForLife> lol - some kind of business competitor?

20:50 <CoderForLife> long time family feud?

20:50 <xcamel> no - just a total flaming a$$h0l3

20:50 <CoderForLife> each one is hand-crafted

20:50 <xcamel> everybody hated him..

20:50 <Didactylos> Interesting. Easier than a unique design for every wall, like you need if the wall's part of a building.

20:51 <CoderForLife> just like Lego

20:52 <xcamel> ps: he died of a massive rage-fueled grabber about 12 years ago....

20:52 <CoderForLife> so my wall should look something like this when done  http://www.outdoorenvironmentsinc.com/res_wall_2.jpg

20:52 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/5vqehb> (at www.outdoorenvironmentsinc.com)

20:52 <Didactylos> Heh. They say you can use the blocks with reinforcing, too - but it must be a bitch to build.

20:53 <CoderForLife> yeah - 20 feet of geogrid every 2 or 3 courses

20:53 <Didactylos> Nice.

20:53 *** Aeternus has quit IRC

20:53 <CoderForLife> compacted sand and crushed limestone backfill

20:53 <Didactylos> I mean concrete stem reinforcement. http://www.allanblock.com/RetainingWalls/autocad/view/AB-28-Masonry-App.gif

20:53 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/5e2uy2> (at www.allanblock.com)

20:54 <CoderForLife> so the "wall system" is 20 feet thick

20:54 <xcamel> and good drainage...

20:54 <CoderForLife> yeah - excellent drainage

20:54 <xcamel> well... off with me...

20:54 <xcamel> nytol..

20:54 <CoderForLife> I bet the drain pipe at the foot of the wall is going to roar

20:54 <CoderForLife> cya Jay

20:55 *** CoderForLife has quit IRC

20:55 <quail> stupid seti

20:56 *** CoderForLife has joined #boinc

20:56 <CoderForLife> damn tab bug

20:56 <CoderForLife> we don't have plans for such reinforcement {TAB} Didactylos

20:57 <Didactylos> Yes, you don't need it.

20:58 <Didactylos> Not if there's no special loading at the top of the wall, and you've got enough space for the slope.

20:58 <CoderForLife> you might need that if you built a parking lot on top

20:58 <Didactylos> Indeed. Highway retaining walls have to meet bucketloads of requirements.

20:59 <Didactylos> And there's usually less space, so they have to be more heavily engineered.

20:59 <CoderForLife> this pic doesn't show geogrid

20:59 <Didactylos> Which? The reinforced one? No need.

21:00 <quail> stupid seti

21:00 <CoderForLife> mine

21:00 <Didactylos> Why would it show?

21:01 <CoderForLife> in the design

21:01 <CoderForLife> http://www.allanblock.com/RetainingWalls/Grid/grid.aspx?ta=1

21:01 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/6o28xe> (at www.allanblock.com)

21:02 <Didactylos> Yes, but it's not visible in the finished wall.

21:02 <CoderForLife> correct

21:03 <CoderForLife> that sectional drawing didn't show geogrid

21:04 <Didactylos> This one: http://www.allanblock.com/RetainingWalls/autocad/view/AB-28-Masonry-App.gif doesn't need it.

21:04 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/5e2uy2> (at www.allanblock.com)

21:04 <Didactylos> But yours is like this, with no concrete: http://www.allanblock.com/RetainingWalls/autocad/view/AB-01-Geogrid-Typical.gif

21:04 <CoderForLife> yes right - but again, that's not what I'm doing

21:04 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/5nvt6o> (at www.allanblock.com)

21:05 <CoderForLife> yes, exactly

21:05 <Didactylos> I know. I think we got a bit mixed up.

21:05 <CoderForLife> about a foot of crushed limestone right behind the wall, then the rest os sand

21:07 <CoderForLife> well - the eyes are fading here - time for bed

21:08 <quail> why is the seti project being a pita to download wu's from

21:08 <Didactylos> quail: the aliens are in control.
