Yep. The only good news was the garage faced the west. It blows off most of the time and then melts off almost immediately. You can't park a car on it without a stout parking brake. The steep part is only about a car's length and then there's about 3/4 of a car's length that's fairly flat before you enter the garage. The lot really wasn't suited for a one the type of house they wanted to build but the contractor failed to mention that. In addition it turned out that even though they were on top of a knob with a steep bank behind the house, there's a spring under their foundation. Of course the contractor didn't think to put drain tile under the basement floor or around the footings. Amazingly I have a friend who recently built a $900,000 house and the contractor neglected to put tile under it either. I should have been over there watching what the guy was doing for him but I didn't want to be too snoopy. I continue to be amazed by the corners "reputable" contractors cut to try to save a $200.Your kidding? Be really interesting getting into the garage with ice on the driveway
I'd put more blame on the developer. This house and driveway are pretty consistent with the grade. Dumb for the homeowner for putting that house on this lot but the builder has to work with what they've got.That looks like my in-laws driveway. That contractor should have been shot.
