The New Driveway!

My son came up on the weekend because he was going to do some excavating work on the site for the new church so while he was here he cut out our new drive way that we have been wanting and waiting for a long time to do. We had the fencing and the gate there but the drive way needed to be cut in and tided up. My son bucketed off the top soil and put it to one side so that I can use it for my garden and then cut the new drive way in and I must say it looks fantastic. I will be able to put a garden out the front and down the sides. I didn't get a before shot because my batteries were flat again but I did manage to find an old photo of the drive way.
The new drive way behind the timber post before the machine did its stuff.

This is the new drive way entry, on the left where my truck is parked is the old drive way. The gate on the old drive way has to stay there so that the energy company can access the power pole for maintance but we can make it look like part of the fence but still be a gate.
It was a big machine and didn't take my son that long to do. Dave and my son went and got three truck loads of gravel from one of our neighbours to put down on the drive way for nothing, how good is that!

It started to get dark and start to rain but my son got the job done.

Wouldn't you like to have one of these handy for those pesky jobs that you want done but can't do for yourself :)

Oh how nice of him. I have wanted one of them for years. We needed a new septic at our old house. But it never got done. The new owner took care of it.
Your son did a wonderful job.

Wow! What did we do before big machinery?
Congrats on getting your driveway done. Your son was so kind in doing it for you, too.
