The driveway has been poured and the framing materials delivered. The garage looks bigger now that it's got a concrete floor. The driveway has a nice perfectly gradual slope down to the street. This is something I was really concerned about after taking a closer look at some of my neighbor's houses, one of which had a driveway which sloped down and then back up. It turns out this is yet another benefit of a west-facing house. In my case the land slopes down to the west so I had a much better chance of a decent driveway.
Sorry the picture isn't spectacular. It was taken by camera-phone and I wanted to get the rainbow in there rather than just the slabs of concrete.
