Aye, the last house is definitely photoshopped. The other two, hmmm... They look steep, but I don't see much to indicate trickery. Could be legit, and yes, it would suck in and sort of weather.

IF that was a legit picture; think what would happen if the owner had a sports car that was lowered and had a body kit. Wouldn't be a lovely sight at all~

Some folks who are victims of that midwest flooding might be going, "Hmmmm."

There are drives like this just down the road where I live. You see every house with the car sitting on the street.

You need more than just help! You better buy a 4-wheel drive jacked up about 3-4 feet. Heck, I'd bottom out just trying to walk up that thing.

I wonder if the stain in the lower picture is motor oil or transmission fluid?

To those screaming "Photoshop", looks legit. Not to mention look at the other pictures and you can clearly see the large grade on the surrounding land. Absolutely terrible, no way you can get out of that driveway without scraping.

You could always try angling it out at the bottom to avoid scraping. But, then you might end up hurting your new BMW like these geniuses :

i bet mowing the grass is fun too. i hope nobody would have bought those houses are looking at them. it looks like they bought a lot and built a house and that is what they got.

Makes you wonder if perhaps it is in a flood plain, and that was the only way they were permitted to build...

Are you kidding me? They expect you to have a slope that strong? Unfortunately it looks like the garage is simply too close to the street..... Someone screwed up royally.

The only thing I can think of is dig the garage down deep and have steps inside the garage up into the house.

With that grade, getting vehicles in and out of the garage *safely* will be a real pain.

I think it would be impossible to get my Honda or Taurus in or out of the garage without major undercarriage damage.

I sure would have liked to watch them pour that driveway. Got to be photoshopped.

It is not an issue even when poured in place, whihc that has to be. It is done all the time. Just use a concrete mix that is a little stiffer than usual and start at the top. (otherwise it will slide down into the rest of what is there)

If this is real, where is the photo of the completed project? This photo is over 3 years old. Someone by now must have snapped one. Or maybe even a street name. We could possibly use google street view.
