It took less than a week for TJ to complete the retaining wall. Many of SPIN’s neighbors stopped to admire and seek information about how the wall was made. Anna Oskarsdottir, SPIN’s resident feral trapper, remarked how it was made just like “old world” masons and was a beautiful job.”
TJ was recommended by Doug and Linda Woodacre of Wellesley.
