I have been living in this house for a year and a couple of months now, up until now it has been all I could manage to keep up with the bills on it. Of course it takes a lot of money to make a down payment on any home. I finally have that stuff under control and I am ready to start fixing this place up. I am trying to work on prioritizing things now. I have been talking to a Barrington driveway contractor about building me a nice semicircular driveway. That would accomplish two things. It would give me the ability to get in and out of the place much easier. In fact at times it is almost impossible to get in and out of this place due to heavy traffic. It is not on a major road, but there is a lot of traffic. If you do not have your vehicle pointing in the right direction you are not going to get out any time soon. Trying to back out is not an option if it is rush hour in the mornings or the evening. Of course I could do a few things to make the driveway usable. I could build a basketball court about a third of the way up a straight driveway. That would be a lot less expensive and it would allow you to turn around pretty easily. The most convenient thing would be to turn into the basketball court when you got home, then reverse out of it. That would probably be the best solution. It is not what I really want though. I would like to have a big circular driveway which went all of the way around the house. The idea is that it would go behind the patio in the backyard and give me a really large basketball court.
