    Default Long road to home.

    So two years ago my wife and I bought 32 acres and decided to slowly improve it with a new house (replacing the old one on top of the road) behind the pond and a pole barn. The property has been neglected for a long time. We started by cleaning up the junk. Since we have been opening up the field where we want to build. This weekend was a big step for us, the first load of stone went down to start the driveway! We know it is going to take a long time before we are done but just getting the driveway started made my day. Here are a few pics of the driveway

    Looks like you're off to a good start. Does the rock slop away from the yard? The lip of the grass over the gravel almost looks like a place for water to settle.

    Ed, the lip on th right side is going to be tappered off next time out. The water drains off fairly well here so that shouldn't be a problem.


    I am will try and put up some more pictures today of the property, I know how much everyone craves photos!

    Is that a mule deer in your photo? It looks like a white spot on the bottom of its neck. Also, did you add color dye to your pond or is that the natural green color?

    Nice pictures and property! I can tell by your photos and description that you find a lot of pleasure in taking a place from the rough and making it like you want it to be. You'll have many happy projects in the future.
