    If you build it steep enough the snow will just slide right off.

    I guess the owners don't intend to ever park a vehicle in those garages. Better off just sodding the whole yard.:rolleyes:

    here's what happened........I have done this in the past too......the house was built BEFORE the road grade was laid out. Granted, the three I did, the top of foundation grade was set by the engineer after he laid out the roads! Good sales piont for the developer......buy this house, get two free Hummers!(no not that kind!)

    What was the builder thinking? Sub out everything and go on a six month vacation. I have built on nasty sites, just excavate and lower the garages under the house and use a set of steps to access the house. It's not perfect but a more workable solution.

    Why is there such a LARGE space of "grass" between the curb and the sidewalk????

    Most are 4' - 5' around my way, with my parents house having only 18" boulevards of grass between the curb and sidewalk (Makes it a real PITA to keep sidewalks clear in winter, as plows' windrows go right on top of the sidewalk!!!

    By them simply moving the sidewalk towards the street for that stretch would help the approach angle some. It would give them more of a front yard as well.

    Easier than moving the house!

    Around my area a grade/incline like that would never get aproval.
    I dont see how you could get a car in the garage no less across the sidewalk.I dont think a vette could even pull into that driveway.Also in our area no over night street parking from nov 15th till aprill 15th because of snow removal.

    So I can asume no one except a hummer owner will be parking in that garage

    How about taking another picture of the drive way with your truck in it aproaching the driveway from the looks of it I would think my silverados front bumper would almost be touching the incline

    I am sure the moving guys are going to have fun

    How in the world did they get the concrete to set with out sliding off the incline

    Looks more like a ski ramp then a driveway.

    What a joke. I know I'd get hung up on that with the way my Unimount sub frame hangs down. I agree with TLS, move the sidewalk further out.:nono:
