We are planning on building a 6' high by 60' long wall between our house and the one next to ours. We have some workers that are going to help us, however we want to make sure we are well informed on how to pour the footings (is there a rule of thumb as to how close the rebar needs to be), do you pour cement in each block, or every other (which a mason once told us). Are there any how-to web sites out there (I have looked high and low but to no avail), or a step by step book that details the process?

PLease, any help is much appreciated).
