When we moved in, just over the seventeen years ago, the driveway was a mess. Roots from tall spruce trees had lifted it up, sections had hidden layers of brick going back to (?), and other areas had the world’s ugliest aggregate concrete. But… the road in front was scheduled for rebuilding and it didn’t make sense to re-pave the driveway until that was done. Then we had two kids and with childcare bills it didn’t make sense to repave it.
Now, seventeen years later, it finally made sense. The road in front is being rebuilt and everyone’s driveways were torn up for at least the first fifteen feet.
We also lost two of the tall spruces up front by the road due to a fire caused during the road construction (long story) – that freed up another parking option for the driveway.
So, now was the time. Bix was one of the first to take it for a spin.
