Good idea, except I grew up in Florida and live in Florida currently (2 hours away) - LOL.. "been here, done all that"...

But, mostly, I need to be here to discuss things and supervise all the upgrades. Driving 4 or 5 hours a day to commute while that work is done is not appealing.

My wife will wait at home until I give her the all clear to come on down and move in with me again!

2 of my neighbors had a coating applied to their driveways that required 5 days for the cars to be off the finish, they parked on the street, no problems. If you are still concerned, you could probably call community watch and tell them your car will be on the street due to driveway work.

Thank you that sounds like the way to go.

Do you know where I could find the number for Community Watch in McClure?

OP, send me a PM if you want to leave your car in our driveway for a couple of days. We are up north so it won't be blocking access to our garage. However, we live north of 466 near Tierra Del Sol, so you will need a ride to/ from your home.

Thank you very much for the offer!

I think the parking in the street will work, and I will just let Community Watch know.

So, I thought asking here first might be a reasonable thing to do.
Please accept my apology, as I did not intend for my response to seem like you were asking anything but a necessary question.
In my initial response I suspected someone had told you that parking on the street was not allowed. I say this because I was told this by neighbors when I first moved to the villages. It was many years later before I discovered that my neighbors just preferred that no one park in the street. One neighbor even became annoyed when someone had work done at their house, because it meant workers vehicles were always parked on the street.

Sorry, I am just a "Grumpy Old Man" - no harm no foul!

Thanks for the comment, and yes, I have heard of people getting annoyed at workers parking on the streets... I guess all work should be done at night and in complete silence.

What do people do with their car while they have their driveway and garage sealed and painted? I understand it will take two days (after it is cleaned.)

Do you just park on the street? Do you ask neighbors to let you park in their driveways?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Thanks,

Can’t give you any better advice than what you have already received. Just wanted to say Cliff and his crew will do a great job. Ours looks just as good today as it did four years ago when Decorative Concrete did our driveway!
