Small Pier/Sono Tube
Small Piers and Sono-tubes: Two sizes of square pyramids (9 x 9 x 6″ Ht. and 16 x 16 x 12″ Ht.) work well as deck and basement post supports and blocking up mobile homes. Thrust blocks are a shorter version of the piers, and work well as supports for mobile homes, propane tanks, etc. They serve to keep wood blocking raised above moisture levels and provide a stable base. For larger applications we build a cylindrical Sono-tube support, with 16″ diameter tapered base, 9″ top diameter and 36″ height.
