    Just another day in a Pennsylvania. No state licensing of contractors whatsoever.

    Just arriving I knew this was going to be a treat. Are you sure you are ready for inspection? IMAG0075.jpg IMAG0076.jpg IMAG0077.jpg

    I'm certainly not advocating this crap show and will not let this out of the bag to any contractor however section 403.1.5 will permit a 1:10 base/bottom slope, they just need to raise the sidewalls and step it to provide a level top surface.

    At the least, the soil capacity is greater than 1500PSF ;)
