We have a long time family friend in the Pitt area that builds those types of homes. He became a millionair there. Although I don't know what he calls his biz.

First off, great work! Quick question.

3rd and 4th picture with the Unilock Town Hall pavers (I think that's their name) the ones that are meant to look like an old 4x8 waterstruck brick. Did you find you had a hard time keeping straight bond lines. I did a project with them this year in herringbone and no matter how hard I tried to keep lazer straight bond lines, I wasn't able to. I mean they were straight but not lazer straight. The lines look like yours in the 3rd pic. I kind of figured that with the way the paver is made with the bottom portion different that the upper portion then they were made to look "off." Did that make sense?

Thank you for the compliments guys. And to answer your question, that brick is a smaller version of the Town Hall which is copthorne from Unilock. Which is a bigger ***** to keep on bond. So to answer your question, yes it was difficult lining the edges up on the string line

Glad it wasn't just me. FYI, that town hall paver is 2 3/4" thick with wide joints and I got about 25 sq ft out of a 50 lb bag of poly sand. Unilock rep told me that it would get about 60 sq ft out of a 50 lb bag. On a 900 q ft pavement that difference added up quick.
