It took several days to dig the old driveway up:
The new drive is now formed (bad nighttime pic from this evening) and ready to pour:
|We were just looking for a richer gray, but there's a whole world of color out there...|
|Stalking the neighbor's driveway – whose gray color we love!|
|For comparison, another neighbor with a newer UN-tinted driveway –|
we are looking for something less stark in brightness than this.
Figuring out what to tint is another story! The sidewalk running in the front of the house is old, and dull gray in color. The sidewalk used to run breaking through the driveway horizontally, then the bottom of the driveway continued down to meet the street.
|And with forms|
|The steps to the backdoor will be replaced (obviously) and|
to the left and right of the steps we will create 2 planting beds
in lieu of hardscaping.
|Slab stairs sitting on top of inset risers. This particular set is staggered|
although ours would have been the traditional centered set up.
|The bluestone slabs will connect to those in the front of the house|
Till then! Have a great weekend everyone!
