Another view of the driveway

and now for a side shot http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif Just a little steep?
12-07-2007, 09:03 PM
That would have to be bad on the transmission after a while parking like that day and day out.

This for real ?
One steep hill
I wouldn't want to be backing up a trailer or something

These driveways are a builders wet dream, how does this builder expect anyone to drive up or down?
12-07-2007, 09:13 PM
LOL why not make the garage at ground level and have it one level lower than the house's main floor? http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/pointlaugh.gif

That would be the smart thing to do but I dont think NO I know the builder wasnt thinking, I think he fell off the concrete truck and BUMPED his head!

Maybe he fell down that hill before the house was built... looked up and said "Man, a house would be PERFECT on this hill.... and it would be a VERY nice driveway, too!"

You would never make it up or down in a car. You would have to own a truck or park on the street.

.............and don't even THINK about it in one of those lowered import jobbys..... ick

I was also wondering how they got the concrete to stay in that position while it was still wet?
12-08-2007, 10:51 AM
I bit the guys that poured it were thinking - yeah okay this builder is a idiot to think this is actually going to be functional. But will take the money.
12-08-2007, 07:50 PM
Two things..1. WHAT inspector signed off on THAT? and 2. Dont know where that is, but wouldnt be fun in winter up here in ohio! How about PLOWING it! http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/pointlaugh.gif

How true LOL
Just walking up that thing daily would be a pain.

Yeah.... and God forbid them to have teenagers learning to drive a stick shift!

I'd hate to be a drunk sleepwalker at that house, too...

That house will never sell. They just totally ruined the value of a perfectly good brand new house. They've eliminated the opportunity to sell to: elderly, parents with young children, people with chronic or existing illnesses... well #### the list goes on so long it would take more time than I am willing to write. My guess is there are only a few people that would be willing to overlook something like this but I couldn't even imagine who they might be.
OK, so it suits your needs. Try reselling it. Very stupid contractor. I can't believe somebody along the way didn't say "aaah Bob,... I think this may be an issue here..." or whatever. I can't even laugh about it because it's so ridiculous.

well you don't have to worry about a flood
01-01-2008, 11:16 PM
LOL!! I hadn't thought about it like that, Jeff... that may, indeed, be the only selling point of that house!
