It’s time to replace the old driveway. The old one had been quite possibly since the house was built (1963) so it’s way past time. The concrete is cracked, and as it happens was never properly laid to begin with so it’s a wonder it’s lasted as long as it has.
Work began in the garage, where the old floor had to be saw-cut along the foundation then broken up and hauled out. Then the patio and garage apron were next. Getting the patio out had the not entirely unexpected effect of bolixing the electric when the Bobcat lifted a section of concrete which just happened to have the wire that feeds the garage buried in it. Took out the electric to the back bedrooms too. Nice little short. We got that straightened out today, new electric lines properly laid.
Now the front section of the drive is asphalt, and is in terrible condition. We’re replacing that with concrete so it will be concrete from the street to the garage floor.
How about some photos?
I reckon that’s enough for now. Work has progressed beyond the point you see here– though actually it’s still in the destruction phase– and with a little bit of good weather (this is June and it’s been raining– sometimes torrentially) maybe the job will be finished in a week or two.
