New Driveway (Fall 2000)
After many years of use and neglect, the driveway had seen better days. When the house was build in the 50's, a single car garage and lane driveway was all that was needed. But today, 2 and 3 car families are common place. The problem was where to park 3 vehicles. Since the garage can not be expanded, the next option was to enlarge the driveway. The old driveway was removed and a 9 x 40 foot addition was added. Now at 18+ feet wide and 40+ feet long, we have room for 5 cars.
|The old driveway was removed and loaded into the waiting dump truck.|
|The new addition was formed and sand was added.|
|The sand was spread out....|
|and then was compacted and leveled .|
|The metal grid was laid...|
|and the cement was
(hazy background - fog had settled in that day)
|One truck load done....|
|The cement was leveled and smoothed....|
|The second load of cement finally arrived to complete the job.|
|And it was leveled and smoothed.|
A new Driveway!
