Before: The residence in 2001.
Our clients own a lakefront Tudor revival home built in 1910, located in the Evanston Lakeshore Historic District. They shared an asphalt driveway with their neighbors, who reside in a newer construction home built in 2005, situated closer to Lake Michigan. The shared driveway was narrow, which caused traffic issues when homeowners were coming home or leaving at the same time, and issues with vehicles hitting retaining walls.
A few years ago, the two neighbors and a third collaborated together to create private sand beaches on the lake. The undertaking involved the delivery and placement of hundreds of large boulders and lots of sand, heavy machinery and equipment. The driveway was damaged as a result, and repair was necessary.
