    Cannot stay as a finished product :nono: . A car will bottom out on the bumpers. OOPPPPPPPPPs. Bad planning by rookie :help: builders.

    Has to be a doctored picture. But if it was real...it'd be easy to plow. Just throw a rock at the driveway, an avalanche will occur, and when it stops simply push the snow off to the sides and waa-laa! Done.

    You know what i would love to do , sit there and watch the first guy try and pull out of his driveway in the mournig after a fresh snow or ice storm. Or maybe the guy that wakes up and has to get to the bottom of his driveway for his paper , that could be fun.............

    You guys are all looking at this picture the wrong way...

    This row of houses are a dream come true!

    There is a fortune sitting there...because no one including the owners would want to do it!

    Buy about a dozen $10 plastic snow shovels and pick up a truck load of out of work Mexican landscapers...unleash them on the driveways and you can buy a new plow truck after one snow season with the profits :eek:

    bottoming out aside, the drives we have here that are a little less steep are heated with glycol heating systems ao the snow melts as it falls.

    Here's a better angle. I would never buy a house with a driveway like that.

    wow is all i can say , these people that are gonna live here will have to own lifted 4x4's with v8's and at least 36" tires to get up there.not sure i would even shovel that , maybe for a 100 bucks . i like the dry lake theory. makes more sence.

    Anybody hear of building codes? I don't think that would be legal... you never know though. You can't build in wetlands either, but that happens every day.
