Holy mud! Did you know we shared a driveway? It is crappy because we can only park in our garage or directly in front if it, but when we get to split the cost of the new concrete, it's fab! Our share of the cost is just $4400. Hoodie hoo!
The concrete guys worked fast on the demo and already had some new stuff poured within a day! Amazing.
While I love the new curb, it is much higher than the previous one, I will need to add dirt and replant all my perennials higher in the ground next spring. Major sadface. I'm not sure why that happened, but I guess there isn't much to be done about it.
While I knew that some of my bulbs and day lilies would fall victim to the excavation, I was still sad to see all the clumps the workers laid against the house. I just don't have the energy to replant them right now!
They still have to pour a little 4x4 sidewalk for the side door of our house. That door has only been used to bring our washer and dryer into the basement, but we're hoping to make it more functional by getting a proper storm door and light.
Among all the construction, I had to share my new rose, blooming like crazy in November. What a happy sight in this gloomy rain and cold!
I can't wait for this driveway to be done, switching our cars from one side of the street to the other every night is getting pretty tiring. Hopefully I have more kitchen info to share next week...it's crunch time on finalizing our plans and getting cabinets ordered!
