John bought a bike to ride to work meaning his truck stayed at home 90% of the time. Because we only had a one car driveway it got left in the street all the time which always worried me.
A couple Thursdays ago I had the day off and someone pounded on my door at 7 AM. I didn't answer the door since I wasn't dressed and the pounding sounded forcefully scary. After another 10 minutes they pounded again and rang the door bell 3 times, I dragged Winston with me to answer the door and when I cracked it open a grumpy construction worker told me to move the truck off the road or it was going to be towed. It was a really good thing I was home or they would have just towed John's truck. That was the final straw though and told John that it was probably time to extend the driveway.
John finished installing the vinyl fence in the small section by the driveway so that all would be ready for cement.
For once we hired a contractor, we didn't want to do it ourselves and the extra money spent to get it done right was very worth it. The contractor prepped the space by taking out the dirt and digging down the area, they also cut the curbing making the approach (fancy word for the dipped part of the driveway) wider. He also suggested that we get new supports for the carport since the original brick wasn't very safe. He did those for free.
My neighbor liked the work so much that he had the contractor do his whole driveway too. Since cement is so expensive and wasn't really planned into our "projects for the year" we just did the addition and not the whole driveway.
Those that have a big driveway, don't take it for granted. They're awesome!
