Asphalting the road / Asfaltado el camino / Bitumage de la route / Asfaltamento da estrada

In English:

Asphalting the road to our home

We lived in our detached house between years 2003-2012 on the countryside. The distance from Helsinki was about 45 km / 28 mi to the north.

The distance to our home from the main road was about 200 meters / 219 yards. The side road leading to our home was a gravel-coated and we suffered many years from the dirty road after the rain. Car washing was almost useless as it was dirty immediately after the rain. Finally, in 2005 it was decided to asphalt. The asphalting company offered the opportunity to obtain an asphalt road to the garage at low cost. We accept the offer happily.

To understand you better, I will show before the actual asphalting, some aerial photographs of our home with its surroundings, and the front and back of our house. A total number is five photos. Most of the images are not of high quality because I photographed in June 2005 them with my first digital camera with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX7 (5.0 Megapixel) which I bought in the fall of 2004.

Please note that asphalting requires a good foundation work before starting it. If asphalting is not familiar to you, then after seeing my photos, it will be.

En español:

Asfaltado el camino a nuestro hogar

Vivimos en nuestra casa unifamiliar entre los años 2003-2012 en el campo. La distancia desde Helsinki fue de unos 45 km / 28 millas hacia el norte.

La distancia a nuestra casa desde la carretera principal era de unos 200 metros / 219 yardas. El camino lateral que conducía a nuestra casa estaba cubierto de grava y sufrimos muchos años de la calle sucia después de la lluvia. El lavado de autos fue casi inútil ya que estaba sucio inmediatamente después de la lluvia. Finalmente, en 2005 se decidió asfaltarlo. La compañía de asfaltado ofreció la oportunidad de obtener una carretera de asfalto hasta el garaje a bajo costo. Aceptamos la oferta alegremente.

Para comprenderlo mejor, vos mostraré antes del asfaltado real, algunas fotografías aéreas de nuestra casa con sus alrededores, la parte delantera y trasera de nuestra casa. Cinco fotos en total. La mayoría de las imágenes no son de alta calidad porque las fotografié en junio de 2005 con mi primera cámara digital con la Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX7 (5.0 megapíxeles) que compré en el otoño de 2004.

Tenga en cuenta que el asfaltado requiere una buena base de trabajo antes de comenzar. Si vos no está familiarizado con el asfaltado, después de ver mis fotos, entonces vos es.

En francais:

Asphaltage de la route à notre maison

Nous avons vécu dans notre maison individuelle entre les années 2003-2012 sur la campagne. La distance de Helsinki était d’environ 45 km au nord.

La distance à notre maison de la route principale était d’environ 200 mètres. La route secondaire menant à notre maison était recouverte de gravier et nous avons souffert de nombreuses années de la route sale après la pluie. Le lavage de voiture était presque inutile car la voiture était sale immédiatement après la pluie. Enfin, en 2005, il a été décidé d’asphalter. La compagnie d’asphaltage a offert l’opportunité d’obtenir une route goudronnée jusqu’au garage à bas prix. Nous acceptons l’offre avec plaisir.

Pour mieux vous comprendre, je vous montrerai avant l’asphaltage reel, quelques photographies aériennes de notre maison avec son environnement, ainsi le parvis et l’arrière-cour de notre maison. Le nombre total est de cinq photos. La plupart des images ne sont pas de grande qualité car je les ai photographiées en juin 2005 avec mon premier appareil photo numérique avec le Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX7 (5.0 Megapixel) que j’ai acheté à l’automne 2004.

S’il vous plaît noter que l’asphaltage nécessite un bon travail de fondation avant de le démarrer. Si l’asphaltage ne vous est pas familier, alors après avoir vu mes photos, vous le seres courants.

Em Português:

Asfaltagem da estrada para a nossa casa

Nós vivemos em nossa casa isolada entre os anos de 2003-2012 no campo. A distância de Helsinque era de cerca de 45 km / 28 mi para o norte.

A distância para a nossa casa da estrada principal foi de cerca de 200 metros / 219 jardas. A estrada lateral que leva à nossa casa era coberta de cascalho e sofremos muitos anos na estrada suja depois da chuva. O lavagem de carro era quase inútil porque ficava suja muito rápida depois da chuva. Finalmente, em 2005, foi decidido pavimentar com asfalto. A empresa de asfalto ofereceu a oportunidade de obter uma estrada de asfalto para a garagem a baixo custo. Nós aceitamos a oferta felizmente.

Para melhor compreendê-lo, mostrarei, antes dos trabalhos de asfaltagem, algumas fotografias aéreas de nossa casa com seus arredores e o átrio e o quintal de nossa casa. Há cinco fotos totalmente. A maioria das imagens não são de alta qualidade porque eu fotografei em junho de 2005 com minha primeira câmera digital com a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX7 (5.0 Megapixel) que comprei no outono de 2004.

Por favor, note que o asfaltamento requer um bom trabalho de fundação antes de iniciá-lo. Se asfaltagem não é familiar para você, então depois de ver minhas fotos sera.

  1. Very interesting Matti, the new tarmac must have made life so much easier for you. I very much like the style of that house too. Hope you have a good week. It’s still very cold here!

      Thank You. Yes, it really made our life easier after “suffering” many years. I do not know if You have Your own house, but I am sure that the link showing our willow fence is rare. I was beautiful in summer, but winter is another story.

      Have a good day!

  2. People usually seems think that the asphalt is very expernsive, but wages for 6 men with heavy machinery really adds to the bill! 🙂

  3. Hell! Your house built in nature is very wonderful. It is awkward that a car becomes dirty when it rains in the gravel road. It was good to be paved.Have a nice day!

    • Hello wakasahs15th.

      Thank You for Your kind words. We loved it very much, but it became too expensive to keep it. My wife had a small flower garden there and someday I will show which flowers she kept during years in addition to those, which I showed in my links. I am sure that in Japan You do not have a willow fence.

  9. Quite a lot of workers are necessary to built a road and a large employment of machinery – even direktly at your house they could use the roller! Wow!
    Thanks for showing the whole procedure, Matti! Quite impressive!
    I imagine it was really nice to have a road asphalted instead of using the old unpaved way in muddy times (rain, winter).

    Have a nice week!

    • Hello Michèle.

      The whole process was unimaginable fast – finished in two hours. It was finally worth of the price, which we paid. The work was made so well, that it did not had any cracks during the time we lived there. Asphalt was in winter easy to shovel. We had huge Snow scoop which, took a huge area free of snow. Because I wanted to shovel manually, my / our shoveling lasted more or less two hours.

      Have a nice week too! Matti

    Comment by Sue Slaght — April 13, 2018 @ 06:05 | Reply

    • Hello Sue.

      Thank You. One of my favorite smell from my childhood is the smell of a steam engine. In the centre of Helsinki, steam engines went to the railway station under a bridge. Many times, we stood on the bridge and sniffed their smell. I think that I have olfactory memory, because I can after the years feel it smell.

      Have a wonderful day!

  17. Muddy roads aren’t very nice,not only do they make an ugly car,it’s hard on the underside of the vehicle,especially brakes. I can imagine it was so fun to drive on the paved road for the first time!🙂 lovely home.

    • Happy Monday Morning Heidi.

      Thank You for Your praising comment. We do not live any more there. We lived there nearly 20 years, but to keep it became slowly too pricy, so we moved to a small town called Mikkeli where we lived only about four years. Now we live in Helsinki. Mikkeli was beautiful and our home was on the board of the big lake called Saimaa (only 20 meters). Mikkeli bcame to small us, because we walked and took bicycle rides daily when it was possible. Therefore, we knew every place there within few years. We have excellent memories from there. For example old historic steam ships visited there, cruise to rock paintings and many more. Here is my link to Mikkeli.

      Mikkeli

      Happy new week. Matti
