If talking by phone is included with answer then please call. Also I was thinking on a 3'x3'x3' of concrete for each leg to be set in. The soil in clay sand mix on a hill.

The phone call is an additional fee. Would you like the phone call this morning?

Do you have a sketch or picture you can attach?

Just called and cancelled payment, next to report this sight.
Expert:  StructuralEng replied 7 months ago.

Sorry to hear you feel that way. There is nothing wrong with the site. I would have been happy to request a refund for you myself if you had said that. I asked if you have a sketch or picture you can attach. The description was not helpful. Good luck with your project.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I'm very sorry, I don't get along with this thing very well. I haven't cancelled anything yet. I couldn't find any response from anyone so I just said to heck with it. I will try to sketch what I'm wanting n figure out how to get to you.
