Excavating the New Driveway
Last week the workmen starting digging out our yard to lay the concrete driveway and walks. Phew! That's one dusty job. There were five guys working on our 150 foot driveway. The digging and grading is done. Hopefully, in the next few days, the concrete will be poured.
Sideyard - Time for a New Gate!
Of course, there were various little problems along the way. Our previous neighbor (Marion) had her sprinkler lines laid on our property. Larry had to re-direct a few of our current neighbor, Miguel's, sprinkler lines so they wouldn't be buried under our concrete.
There will be a significant drop-off from the walkway to our front door to the new driveway. For now, we'll just place a temporary step there. We definitely have to re-think the entrance walkway to our house. It's always been a problem, having people traipse across a wet front lawn directly into our house. Larry and I will be walking around the neighborhood to see how other homeowners have solved these problems.
Larry and Neighbor-Miguel Confer on Driveway Construction After the paving, the exterior house-painting begins! Woo Hoo! Landscaping soon to follow! Of course, I'd like our landscaping to look like this when we're finished: Hahahahahaha! Addendum: Today, the cement mixer trucks showed up! The guys will be pouring cement all morning!
