Story Rite: Built for Masons, by Masons.
The Story-Rite™ masonry story pole system was invented by a masonry contractor, Justin Ruonavaara. Justin felt there had to be an easier way to lay block and eliminate the need to build time consuming masonry leads.
For every block put down NOT ON THE LINE, it needs to be checked that its level, plumb and straight. That's 3 checks for every block! A 6 course lead is 63 checks, think of the time and wear on your body performing all those checks!
The Story-Rite masonry story pole system was created to speed up the block laying process. The poles are plumbed, the line is run and the block is laid to the line.
Some contractors have reported laying block almost twice as fast with Story-Rite when compared to the way they used to lay masonry block.
“I feel like Story-Rite™ is a great asset to our company. We finally have found something where you don’t have to build time consuming leads. We can build the leads and the wall with Story-Rite™ nearly faster than it used to take us to just build the leads with a level. This innovative system has really sped up our block laying; thus saving me time and money.”

“We built a 40’ x 40’ foundation 6 courses high with 10" block. We estimated it to take 30 hours total to lay all of the block. It only took 21 hours, thanks to these new masonry story poles! These masonry story poles are a no-brainer for any contractor that lays any amount of block!
684 10" regular block
+24 10" return corners = 708 Block
Estimated 30 hours to lay.
Actual 21 hours to lay.
30-21 = 9 hours of labor saved.
Saved approximately 30%
These poles will shine even more on a foundation with a lot of corners and jogs!"”
