A DIY Cinder Block Retaining Wall Project

Do you remember when Decoist featured the tiny house of Andy Pluta? Built as a guest house/artist’s studio and completed in 2014, this modern dwelling rests on Pluta’s lot, to the right of his one-story home. After some time passed and he finished his first project of 2015, a retaining wall built from cinder blocks, I knew I had to snap some photos and share the process. Plus, he’s always willing to answer my questions since I’m his sister! Since Pluta did all of the labor himself, he was able to keep the overall cost of the wall at around $250 (plus an additional $200 for the plants and gravel).
