Last check-in on our house was showing the footprint of the patio out back , but things continue to move along both inside and outside. One of the latest things is the installation of our new driveway. Above, you see the apron or approach between the driveway and the street being installed by the crew. We were able to get there while the concrete was setting up and Nat etched out name in the driveway. At our old place, we didn't have much of a driveway. Our garage was out back off the alley and we had a kind of 'pad' for one car out front. Thus, shoveling wasn't a big issue. I'd break out the shovel and spend more time on the sidewalk than on the driveway. But, just look at this thing!?! We decided to set the house back an additional 20 feet behind where it had to be (by code) because we wanted to try to save a tree that we would have had to cut down. But, that created 20 additional feet of driveway that I'm going to have to tend to this winter.
