We are excited about not having to build a garage. This would have taken a good size chunk out of the main living space. Now we can have a dining room and a living room at the front of the building. Discussions went very well with the City of Winooski and with Public Works. The driveway will come in at a diagonal and will be larger than many other driveways that already exist on East Spring Street.
The driveway will not be made of solid concrete or black top. We are looking at a few different ways to add a permeable surface, which will help with storm-water runoff and allow us to have more green space. More to come on that!
