After the loan, which was a pain in the &*(%, as you would expect, we started on the road. We had an existing road that had been graded about 10 years ago and was in pretty good shape. It just needed some repair, especially on culverts, and a new layer of gravel. Here's our entrance (before gravel......) The road curves to the left and goes on up the hill, through a grove of rhododendrons and up to the house site. The grader did a fabulous job, and I will post a picture of the finished road in a later post.
