Concrete Retaining Wall Against A House
I have french doors leading from my house to the backyard. I want to build a patio area outside the doors, but the height of the doors from grade is about 18 inches. Can a concrete block wall be built against the house so that the patio will be at the same elevation of the finished floor of the house? What do I need to do to build that retaining wall? Do I need to prepare the wood part of the house in any way? Because the concrete wall will be covering an area of the house below the doors.
