    We did all landscaping, most of the stamped and colored concrete, all excavating, and clearing, along with raising one pole shed 4ft., hauling 55 loads of black dirt up from the farm, I dont know its kind of like a bad dream but its over finally. Thanks for the compliments.

    You'd have a better looking house if you charged more for snowplowing!

    I like it!!

    Polaris Ranger that thing gets used everyday around the farm since we got that we seldom use our 4wheeler, the kids still ride theirs though

    Thanks for all the compliments guys we appreciate it we worked our tails off, ended up I think around 275 yds of concrete with shed floor and stamped patio plus what you see in pic I remember some of those nights building retaining walls at 3am with a spotlight.

    Snowplowing is just a portion of what we do.

    wow, you always have to be so careful what pictures get posted! It took me a min to see the ranger!

    I love the driveway, I can't imagine the amount of work that took, very very beautiful!

    Wow, that looks like 80-90 yards of cement. How many pours did you do? I've not done a drive that big in 6 years or so.

    Thats a real nice place you got.

    All total we ended up pouring about 275 yards of concrete, including shed floor, porch, driveway, and stamped patio outback. We did all colored and stamped out front first as well as stamped patio out back first. Then did all the white out front in 2 pours. We did cheat a little and used a pump truck for the 2 white pours. Thanks for all the compliments guys. Sure was a long time coming.
