Driveway Reaches The Top

Eighty eight dump trucks of gravel later and we’ve reached the top of the land!   Today was the first day we’ve been able to drive to the top of our lot (which is a lot easier than walking!).

There’s still some work to be done, and we’ll have to patch the road once the cement trucks, diggers and dump trucks have used it for the build, but this is a real milestone for us.

The Driveway Begins

An eventful day today – all our goods have arrived from the UK and our driveway has begun to take shape!

We’ve been told that it’s going to take around 100 dump trucks, each with 16 ton of gravel to create the driveway.   Terry, our dump truck/bulldozer driver started with the first few loads today and you can see his progress in the photos.

It’s amazing to see the land starting to develop and it was great to finally be able to drive onto it.   Won’t be long (well about 100 dump trucks long) until we can drive to the top!
