Just Broken In – The driveway

After I bought the land I started to save money for a driveway. This was my first priority, you have to be able to get onto the land, in order to live on the land. Budget $10,000.00.

The first step was to survey the land. AKA drinks some beers with good friends and walk in the best driveway line you can find.

Total cost: $8400.00 – I will have to add a few more trunk loads of gravel next year as everything settles into place so the driveway should come in on budget.
