a blind trick i learned about laying out a line with a string is not to 
start the string at the corner of your house but to run the string 
starting from a point along the wall as far back as you can.
its easy then to make sure the string is equal distant along the wall then 
when it passes out beyond the corner you can maintain a nice straight line 
out from the house.

stake down the far end of the line then go back and feel that the line 
stays straight along the wall.
you may have to move the far stake left or right till you get it just 
dont know if this is clear, it's real easy if i showed you but maybe not 
to explain.
