Construction Complete… almost

putting down the base coatThe pavers came today. It seems like we’ve been waiting for them to show up forever. They came last week to do the prep work and they arrived today with several rollers, trucks and the paving machine. The plan was to put down the base coat and then finish with the top coat and be done. The base coat went down without a hitch, at least until they went to do the final roll. Water began seeping up through the asphalt – not good. We’ve had a freeze/thaw cycle going on lately as the weather has been getting colder. There’s been a lot of moisture in the ground – even walking on the road left footprints. So it really wasn’t a shock to me that there might be some water coming up when pressure is applied.

Anyway, after consultation, we decided to postpone the top coat until after mud season next spring in case there is some heaving and cracking thanks to said water. We’ll be finished one day…
