Driveway Envy Part 4

By
Real Estate Agent with TOUCHSTONE REAL ESTATE

Back on January 22nd I shared an article about driveway envy here in The Villages, Florida and I discussed painted and paver driveways.  Many of you commented or reached out to me about more information as I started our new driveway journey.  The project has started and we are on day four.

Day one was demo day and by afternoon they were hauling in the base and spreading it and started compacting and leveling the driveway.  Day two is more leveling and compacting and starting to actually lay the pavers.  Day three things are really coming together, the borders separating the Herringbone and the Basket Weave, remember I turned the contractor loose for design.

This crew is amazing and how fast and carefully they place each paver.  Let’s see what day four brings as the driveway and walk are getting closer to being done.  What has been fun is I have been getting calls, text messages and Facebook Messenger chats from folks I have never spoke with before and in conversation they mention we love your driveway updates!  I’m thinking a driveway party when done!

What the heck, I think I missed part 4, haha.  I thought I read part 3 yesterday and now I see that there is already part 5.  I kind of figured you might have some sort of party to commemorate it, haha.

Good morning Dick. Quite the project and it does look like a first class job worthy of a driveway party when complete. Enjoy your day.

Brian England I might be confused on the parts anyway the video was from day 3.  Did it last night after a very busy RE day!

Kat Palmiotti you know me well and maybe my contractor would cater it!  He is on my FB page and sees daily post but told him when done I will disclose who he is!  Might help with speed of completion and quality of the job!

Those pavers would also be nice for a patio.

Thanks for sharing your observations.

Roy Kelley thanks, I already have a paver patio and love it, we used the flat ones due to just people not cars!

It's coming along beautifully. That change in pattern shows style and a lot of cutting with the saw to get it right.
