When you are building a new home or other building you will also need to figure out if you need to have a driveway going to this new structure. The best way to decide this is to think about whether or not you want to be able to drive right up to the building. The answer really depends on what kind of building you are having created because if it’s your home then you’ll want a driveway, but if it is just an oversized shed you may not. If it is important that you are able to drive right up to the front of the building then you are going to want to have a driveway.
Once you’ve decide that you do want to have a driveway put in, you then need to think about where the driveway will go exactly. A great way to do this is to take some small stakes and some string and then outline what the drive way should look like. By doing this little exercise you will get a visual on the size of your new driveway, plus you can move the stakes and string until you get the outline exactly how you want it. This may take some trial and error, but you should be able to get a really good feel for what the finished driveway will look like.
After you know what you final driveway will look like it will be time to start the prep work. This is the point in the process where you need to have all the tools, driveway gravel and other materials ready to go. It is quite possible that you will need to have some special equipment to get the job done, so you need to have that ready too. It is quite likely that you will have to rent some equipment to make sure that the project is done right.
Once you have all the tools, equipment and materials, it will be time to lay your driveway gravel. You want the gravel to be a solid surface that will act as good base to the concrete you lay on top of it. You can have the concrete poured once you have all the prep work done and the gravel foundation in place.
