Two loads of stones were delivered this morning to start filling in the new driveway, which is also a critical part of our erosion plan. We're still working on the circular shape and the arm extending down to the garage, but we're getting there.
For newer readers, I should explain that the original driveway approached the house from the side/rear and cut a deep rut straight across the front yard down into the garage -- not the most effective way to create curb appeal (or access the house's entrance). Over the course of two years, tons (literally) of dirt have been moved around, the deep rut was filled in and a new driveway began to take shape.
It doesn't look like much right now and it's not the most exciting thing to blog about, but we feel it's a definite improvement and a sign of progress. I've said it before and I'll say it again: Home improvement is not always (or often) exciting and glamorous!
But crossing off the dirty, boring jobs means you're one step closer to getting to the fun stuff. And that feels good.
