So here is the next hurdle. Driveway. Today we got our permit approved ($150) and have permission to get access to our future home in place. This will consist of leveling road, cutting portions, bringing in aggregate for a road base. We have been a little anxious about this as the road is a bit steep (5-13% incline) but we should be able to get the entire thing under 12% by the time we are done, at least that is our goal.
The existing road we believe was there when we bought the property. We believe it was installed in the 70s when they drilled the unfinished well. More on that later. We hope to get the road in before the winter fully kicks in.
