The Driveway

 

 

Before the county would sign off on the building permit they had to get he fire department to OK the driveway.  We had to add some new road out to where the new house would be located...but we also improved the current driveway to bring it up to code.  Code for fire department access is 12' wide road with 2' shoulders (ie 16' wide rock road).  All turns have to have a minimum radius of 28'.  And there has to be a place where the fire engine can turn around.  So far we have had over 1 million pounds of rock delivered, spread, and compacted.  It seemed like a lot at the time, but the driveway sure is nice now!
