Who knew concrete could be exciting!? ;) One's definition of "exciting" does tend to change when one becomes a homeowner.
My new driveway, walkway, and front landing are done (except for some final cleanup tomorrow).
The new walkway is a vast improvement. It looks so much better, and it slopes properly away from the house... no more lake under the window!
The walkway is now level with the driveway. The old one had sunk quite a bit!
The new front landing looks GIGANTIC. But it will look much more appropriately scaled when I have the landscaping done. I'm thinking about a wrought iron railing. I can never have too much wrought iron. :)
There is a middle school just down the street, and wet concrete is a tempting target for kids... so I have parked myself in front of the window to keep an eye out. And to ensure no vehicles veer too closely, I have parked my car in front of the driveway.
(Aaaand I just had to go running out the garage door to chase away my neighbor's *$*#@! cat, who was strolling across the driveway like it owned the place (probably after using my yard as a litterbox). X( That damn cat is always everywhere it should not be. Luckily the concrete is almost dry and the cat wasn't heavy enough to leave paw prints.)
Yes, I did consider stamping bat shapes into the walkway. I managed to restrain myself. ;)
