Yep, concrete spray on the bricks, but there was already some there from the first pour! Luckily my husband left the garage door open while they poured the driveway,…

Yes, when the concreter saw the leak, he put in a joint so that if it has to be ripped up, only the lower part will be.

This driveway will be the death of us! Although the concreter did a good job this time, the guy who removed the old driveway has damaged the water pipe underneath…

Really the driveway was the only thing to complain about, we have been really happy with the quality of the rest of our build.

This is the inside of our garage, just in case you want another reference. I quite like the look of the bricks inside.

Our first floor windows are the same, including the sliding windows. You should be able to open the higher windows fully (like in the bathroom).
