Sorry. Story poles are used in masonry. You measure the height on each corner you need to hit. With either a modular or brick rule. Turning the rule over you have the number of courses and the height of each course to hit that height. You mark each needed course height on a pole set at each corner( the story pole). Each pole may have different course heights, but the number of courses are the same. Stretching a line between the poles gives you the top of each course. They may or may not be level, but they fill the space between, say the footer and eaves. Story poling just means to divide up the difference and level it out.
