It's obviously been forever and a day since I posted. This has been the never-ending project. I paused for a while because the contractor poured the driveway incorrectly. The specs for tinted driveways weren't followed, and in addition to that, they selected to pour it on a day before a big snow. Therefore, the driveway did not last. It started crusting and flaking within a week. Ensure a couple of months of pushback by the contractor, then finally, in April, a new driveway. I can't say driveway #2 is even perfect, but at this point it's "good enough" as we have given up!
It has not been a great experience with the contractor we chose – almost everything the contractor has done, has been done wrong, and then has been RE-done, miraculously, sometimes wrong again the second time! Sort of sad because I used to love blogging, but these people have just worn me down...
Here are a few pictures of where we are, just to stay somewhat caught up:
|Oh how fun – the second driveway digging!|
|New driveway #2.|
|New door #1 – the door, I actually happen to love, so hopefully there will not be a door #2 |
– unless they happen to screw this up already installed!
|First siding attempt (I told you they have done everything twice).|
|On this first round of siding, they overdid the nails, nailing them in a ceiling pattern instead.|
Isn't it bizarre looking how many nails they decided to use?
Have a great week!
