Throw ten bags of river stone on it. That'll level it out.

Why do Americans not use bricks to build things? I mean I like wood and everything but brick seems to last one hell of a lot longer, my house is a Victorian era brick build so from about 1850-1900 and the only thing wrong with it is a bit of plaster crumbling.

Wood's still cheap & abundant here.

The look on my Swiss friend's faces when they saw photos of my garage framing, all wood, was priceless. Wood's more of a style element there.

I have a 100-A service disconnect between my meter & my breaker panel (next to the panel in the basement)...installed in 1975. Greatest thing ever.

Also used a home-built curb stop key to shut off water at the street to my house so I could replace the failing gate valve on my main :v:
