Overview of Concrete Block Projects

Examples of what you can build with Genie Blocks TM!

Genie Blocks® are not only a fast and simple way to improve the appearance of your property, they can also play a huge role in safety by providing soil stability. This is of particular concern on steep properties, particularly those in areas prone to high rainfall or earth tremors.

The following projects provide some visual perspective on the ease with which Genie Blocks can be used to build.

Building Projects

Luxury Home

Legacy Homes Return

Construction is complete on a 4,600 sq. ft. home made entirely with Genie BlocksTM. The home has three levels and combines two concrete texture faces. The bottom three feet use our popular 'cultured stone' face and the upper areas the new slate-face texture. Fences and retaining walls on the property use the 'cultured stone' finish to compliment the home.

Two-Car Garage

Genie BlocksTM are the newest way to build structures of any size.

The image to the left shows Genie BlocksTM being used in the construction of a 20' x 20' two-car garage. The garage was built by a crew of four in 5 working days only.

 The home will be built using Genie BlocksTM as well and the garage will serve as a secure lock-up for tools and supplies as well as a workshop for the crew.

5 Tier Retaining Wall

Genie BlocksTM are not only a fast and simple way to improve the appearance of your property, they can also play a huge role in safety by providing soil stability. This is of particular concern on steep properties, particularly those in areas prone to high rainfall or earth tremors.

The image at left illustrates Genie BlocksTM used to create a 5-stage retaining wall on a steep grade. All 5 walls were built in just 3 1/2 days by 4 workmen only.

Staircase Systems
New for 2007!


[Click the image for details.]

The all new Genie BlockTM Staircase System is a very cost effective and fast means to install an elegant staircase. Prefabricated stair stringers ensure just the right rise and run for your needs.

With Genie BlocksTM set into place, staircases have the look of hand set masonry!

A staircase, such as the one shown to the left, can be completed in approximately 6 - 8 hours!

Small Decorative Retaining Wall

Genie BlocksTM are a fast and simple way for homeowners improve the appearance of their property without having to take out a second mortgage!

Neighbours arriving home later in
the day were amazed!

Genie BlocksTM can be stained or painted to further enhance the vivid face textures. The company offers a growing variety of texture choices in its standard array.
