look of a dry stack wall and have some retaining properties, we typically start by pouring a concrete footing. We then begin stacking the stone, as the wall rises we pour a solid concrete wall behind the stack stone reinforced with re-bar, grouting back of stones into new concrete wall. This will lock

Love the design... just not sure if it is big enough for our future lake house and if it would be conducive to a sloped lot with a basement underneath...
situation and how outdoor space was provided -- for one way of addressing something similar look at the Mendocino House on my site which is on a sloped lot and has a partial basement (840 SF, 2 BR) where a deck (which increases the footprint) is incorporated as well as and a front terrace.
