The final phase of construction is underway, as men came this morning and started to remove the old driveway. Expediting things was the overall shoddy state of said driveway – instead of a full concrete pad, it was separate concrete tiles straddling a “grass” island (in quotes because grass seldom grew there). Here’s how it looked as on 8:15 this morning:
The new driveway will hug closer to the fence to accommodate new steps coming down from the laundry. Those large bushes on the left will be torn out but we’ll keep some space for the garbage cans. The neighbors will be happy to see those leave the front yard!
