    Trying to find the cheapest method possible

      Concrete is expensive. Forage for some cobblestones, or look into rammed earth walls.

      Thin shell reinforced concrete like ferrocement. Won't hold up to a catapult, but it'll look really cool at least.

    I think I would rather build forms and pour the concrete vs use the bags. I mean the bags would be fast but its just kindof a half assed method no rebar with the bags either. If you want to go cheap maybe find recycled brick or cobblestone

        You don't have to do it monolithic. You don't even have to cast in place. Make some molds/forms for blocks and you can cast, lay, and mortar your way up. Alternatively you can pour in multiple lifts as long as your rebar or mesh extends between lifts.

      buy land with lots of stone already on it and use that, larper

      it doesn't matter, you won't do it.

      You're underestimating the amount of concrete needed for this type of project and you're probably not a skilled mason. Take on some projects in the field before attempting a giant mistake.

      How many damaged one dollar bags do you think they have lying around? Think they have 500 for your gay little project. DIY weekend warrior threads are so bad. You should feel ashamed.

          He could send forth a legion of his finest knights to lay seige to a Home Depot while swarms of his mounted archers performed raids to pierce palletfuls of bagged ready mix so they qualify for the discount.

          Or he could just have his court magician cast a spell to render it all unreliable at full retail.

        if you want a castle that will fit in your living room, sure. you're probably more in the ballpark of thousands. even for a "small" castle.

                It's in a Kentucky city named Versailles, which is even sadder. And I bet you a dime to a dollar the local fricks pronounce it the way it's spelled. I live near Durham NC, and there's a little place called Bahama, which everyone pronounces bah-hay-ma, and another neighborhood named Hayti, which was their attempt at spelling Haiti, and you guessed it: hay-tie.

                Which reminds me. That hilarious line in Clueless where she does a report on the hay-tians wasn't written like that, but Alicia Silverstone was moronic and it was so funny they left it in.

                In the south, had go pick someone up at a business on a road named Vimy Ridge. Sounded like Vine Knee over the phone. Didn't sound too out of place here, but when I saw the sign, and being someone interested in WW1, I was like come on.

                Kentuckian here. It’s pronounced vurr-sells. I’ve driven past that castle many times, it’s right outside of Lexington.

                Is it because theres no real castles around?

                IMO it would be way more fricked if Kentuckians said it the French way. They're down to earth red blooded, welcoming but unpretentious Americans out here. With a smoking problem.

                should have used larger precast agricultural/retaining wall blocks
                maybe OP could use a small auto mixer to pour enough bags for one block every few hours
                but most concrete plants pour their own and deliver - though you'll need a backhoe/telehandler to stack more than a few rows up

            500 standard cinder blocks will make a 10' (outside) diameter cylinder roughly ten feet tall.

            it takes about 400 cinder blocks just too make a small 10'x12' shed, not counting the footings/foundation.If you want a comfortably sized room, you would need about 1000 blocks at least

    Probably the only one who can anser your question. I build this wall underwater made of concrete bags to hold a bed of gravel so we could have a leveled surface to install a pipeline.
    It was a training excersise, not a real pipeline
