Design Under Way

It is destructive. It's intense. It's messing with the way things are....
But...it's design...under way.....
The driveway and path reno began at 7:30 yesterday....I took off and went to my daughter's the whole day. Glad I did.
Hubby said the noise was bad...the tractor, the sledge hammer, the jack hammer.....
But he also said it was quickly removed...then the tractor got busy putting in roadbed....
So, that is where we stand today. And we have to go out the back door and around the side and slip through the hedge to get to the car....
Today, they will tamp and tamp and add the sand base....and perhaps start putting in some of the pavers.
They also are installing a drain, well, actually three drains down the other side so that rain water will no longer collect like a lake....always a good thing....
The design was a concept developed by us over the 26+ years that we have been here, and then modified or enlarged by the coordinator on the project. It has roughly 8 pallets of pavers out front....Not to mention the oh so glamorous outhouse.






So, the driveway itself has been added to by 2 feet (into the lawn) on one side only. This makes it better for cars to park and to back out of the garage...
Honestly, if I ever buy another house....I would not buy one with this kind of driveway! Our Master is on the driveway and therefore the street....it gets noisy or smelly with a car backing out...
It is going to be a great number of pavers....
Most definitely will need to do some gardening after all is said and done......
Well....I will keep you posted....

So far- so good!!! You will be thrilled when they are done. Maybe they will leave you the outhouse for a little present so that you don't have to go inside for any emergency that happens when you are gardening....lol xo Diana
