Driveway Redo


My family and I tackled this project in one day (16 hours of straight work) and learned to never do this much work at once EVER AGAIN! Removed this old broken driveway slab with a hand held concrete saw rented from Home Depot, dug the earth to a 7 inch depth, and laid a new 4 inch thick slab (6' by 6') Also added a short ramp to connect the front walk. About 500 bucks total, 300 after tool rental deposits were returned.

Step 1

This is the Ugly, broken, way-too-thin slab that had to go!

Step 2

Cutting up the concrete with a Saw into Manageable Chunks

Step 3

The concrete is gone, and after hours of digging, I get my second Wind. I begin to lay in the forms.

Step 4

Fresh Concrete is laid and smoothed and drying. This is at 1am. It took us 16 hours.

Step 5

Next morning, cure and seal the concrete, remove the forms and fill in with soil and gravel. All finished!
