I Need Help!
 
I am having a problem, I am trying to set a three sided for for an addition. The problem I keep running into is the folllowing: I set one side , stake it level and then proceed on the long side, but when I nail the long side into the level side it throws it off. Any assistance would be helpful. Thanks,

Not your ignorance but mine, sorry.

I am trying to set forms for a three-sided footing for an addition to an existing structure.

I am having the following problem. I set one side, stake it level and then proceed onto the long side, but when I nail the long side into the level side it throws it off.

I need to make the footings completely level, what am I doing wrong?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Two things come to mind; Your first form is moving or your level is off.
