I could have, but I figure this will outlast me anyway, so let the next caretaker take care of it if they want it different.

There is a building at my Mom's house that was built in the 1960's from used 1x barn pine wood. It's still in good shape.

No snow load. The crushed rock looks nice.

Correct, no snow load! Very seldom see over 3", most of the time it's less than 1". We did have 17" during the blizzard of '93, but that was a once in a lifetime event for us.
This is what is called washed gravel around here. Mostly smooth stones, washed to remove the dirt to make it less muddy when spread. Only bad thing is it crawls a lot until it settles, which it probably won't do well until we get the winter rains and the soil gets wetter. After it finally settles and packs in, it stays pretty well in place.
