Thansk that sounds good
We are also looking at putting a loft area over the kitchen-- span of about 11.5FT by 12 feet deep as an extension off extisting attic that has 2" x 1)" floor joitrs
I was thinking of using TJI Floor Joists for this new loft They look much stronger on deflexion and lighter in weight. If on 16" dcenters would materials cost be much higher than with 2" x 10" standard wood?
This was your reply on a loose sand driveway rework at a beach house we have back in Aug 2013
Your first layer should be geotextile cloth (like you mention), then a layer of rip rap (baseball to softball size stone that's typically sifted out of screened gravel) then a layer of smaller stone for a top layer. It's best if the fabric is as wide as your drive way. If you can't get it as long as you need then it should over lap at least 4'
NOW we are looking at getting estimates. We are in Suffolks County , Long Isalnd, NY 11733.. what kind of price would I expect to be quyoted for this work based on anbout 4500 square feet of level ground easy access.?
