Help with our site plan! Where to put the driveway!
So our plans are done, we are nearly ready for submittal and then we realize there is yet another decision to be made... Where to put the driveway! This is very time sensitive as we need to have this back to the engineer so he can lay out the septic system by... well, yesterday!
We are on a large (2.6 acres) corner lot and we would like the driveway to open onto both streets. The actual location of the entrances shown can change.
I've attached what our home designer has drawn up and we aren't completly please with it. We would like some space for guests to leave their cars near the front door, without making a large parking area there.
My thoughts were to have the long part of the driveway in front be 16' wide, and then when it turns have it widen to 20' so there will be room to pass a car parked there.
For some size perspective, the dotted lines are our 30' setback restrictions, and the front of the driveway is to scale at 16'.
There will be a vineyard throughout the entire front yard, and our kitchen has 10' of windows looking out in that direction from the left of the front door (between the front door and the garage). I'd like to be looking out my "vineyard" not the driveway!
Any ideas/help much appreciatted!
