    Hello Guys,

    We have a really narrow driveway which is problematic even (sometimes) for a medium size car to come into garage. With growing family we need to also upgrade to a family size car and we are very worried about damaging it with this narrow driveway. Also by widening it we will have better front look/appearance to the house.

    Called couple of tradies who said its impossible to get the brick match and if try to re-use, the labor cost will be high. So we are thinking to use stone when try to re-construct that part of wall.

    1) Will stone more expensive choice here? What stort of stones should we use for this wall?
    2) I think we will have to take the council crossover permit as well? How much it costs generally for this much part in Sydney?

    3)Looking at the measurement appro how much $ (just guesstimate) are we looking for this job?
