Two french drains, rebar and six inches of concrete later...we have done all that we can to prevent our garage floor from heaving ever again. Now we are waiting for word from the HOA on their approval or rejection of our proposed new front yard design. I am so not used to having to get any one's approval for my home improvements which makes the wait interminable. First, we had to acquire signatures from our immediate neighbors next door and across the street. A detailed summary with drawings, brochures and photos were added. And now we wait.
