foundation material
Is there a basic /general (rule of thumb) formula for calculating concrete blocks-materail for a foundation 60 x 82, 13 courses high?

yup, pretty simple, convert the lenght an individual block into a decimal then divide that into the lenght of the wall x2 same for the width.. then by the number of courses being 13

Are you going to have any openings in the wall?
