You sir, are truly a mad man haha that is very impressive. And you even went as far as using a design in your laying pattern. My dad designs and builds houses (from excavating the foundation all the way to the day it's completed) for a living so I've been around it for a long time and have seen a lot of amazing plans/designs/products and such, and I've seen a lot of horrible ones. This is one of the better things that I've seen. The interesting pattern and the fact that you did it by yourself, that is very impressive. I tip my hat to you sir

Thank you. The pattern sucked to do, but I was glad in the end.

I lost 15 lbs too.. People that do this for a live are nuts.


I'm not sure if its a BMW sickness, but I'm starting to think doing the driveway was so our cars would have a nice home to sit. I find myself staring at the cars during dinner until the wife yells to snap out of it!

Driving up to and walking about on that property, seeing one's own handy work that has turned out so beautifully has got to instill a great sense of pride in the one who has done this with their own bare hands.


Cost & time comments have validity in this thread, but there is an imense sense of self satisfaction to be had by completing a project on your own like this that money can't buy.

Great job, OP ...looks great!

Awesome comment. Those who have felt it know what it is. Those who haven't will hopefully. Crosses over to doing your own maintenance on your BMW. Its a little house and a little driveway, but its my sweat and blood.

Too cheap to pave driveway. Bought 6000 pavers instead. UPDATED!

Looks great! The red brick really complements your white facade.
