Block walls have been used in basement construction for years. In unsupported basement block walls, concrete blocks are laid to form the wall, which supports the building structure (Figure 1). Back-filling of the soil at the exterior of the wall forms the grade, which diverts water away from the wall. The wall system is relatively easy to install and low in initial cost.
