The house had no garage.
It used to have a garage.
It used to be under the house. It was pretty obvious why there wasn’t a garage any more.
While lots of garages under houses get remodeled as a way to get more living space, this garage was finished off for “other” reasons–although the new bonus room was probably useful.
As we move into the winter season, it is only natural to think about slippery conditions and even skiing if one is into that. But typically skiing and driveways don’t go together–although if one was into skiing perhaps it would. I am not much of a skier–a little cross country–and if I was to ski down this driveway, I am pretty sure I would not want a busy street at the end.
But back to the driveway.
Installing a driveway on this much of a slope is not that easy to do.
They did a pretty decent job too.
A lot of time and materials spent for nothing.
Concrete driveways are usually a good selling point for a home.
In this case it is likely more of a liability. I am not sure I would want to have to walk up or down this driveway in slippery conditions–let alone attempt to drive up it or park on it.
(And there is no trick photography involved with the picture either)
