Just happenstance ... but we now have a circle drive! When the earth dozer first arrived at our property a few weeks ago to do its thing, in order to get to the lot, the driver chose the lowest spot from the shared easement driveway (shared with two other homes) to enter property. By doing so, he opened up a perfect path for our intended driveway to circle on around, making it a circle drive. When DH asked the builder about keeping it, our builder wasn't sure because it wasn't in the plans approved by the county ... but today, he informed us that the county said we could incorporate it into the plans. DH was smiling ear to ear over that little prize!

I'm green again. I always wanted a circular driveway. Thank goodness I have you to live vicariously through!

No.. you don't have to live vicariously ... just remember when you build your dream home to give me a call and I'll steer you clear of many pitfalls :)
