Removal of the Forms

Forms can be removed now or they can remain in the wall as long as necessary. The longer they remain, the more curing time to allow the wall to become stronger. ( Just something to think about, depending on design and the quality of the earthen fill.) Tap out the wedges with a hammer. The form is now free to drop down and be pulled out (Fig. 6.68). To remove the wedges from a side wedge box form, insert a pipe through the space at either end of the blocking and knock out the board at the opposite side (Fig. 6.69). The box form is then free to be removed (Fig. 6.70).

Bask in your accomplishment.

6.69: To remove wedge blocks, insert a pipe through the space at either end of blocking and knock out the block at the opposite side.
