$20 plus per sf on small entry walks is the only way to go, other wise you will loose money.
Pun intended I hope

Yes, professionals use bathrooms. The homeowners do not want to smell urine from a crew of 3 when they're walking around the yard. 90-degree days and it gets REAL pleasant.

We rent porta bathrooms for $85 to $100 per MONTH.

I would not do a trailer. Then you have to dispose of the crap. Who has time to drive to a sewer plant? Let the porta pot companies contend with it.

I cant understand the 4 days of dropping pavers in place. Once you get the base all set you can drop pavers as fast as you can move.

Silly me, 16 yrs of doing this, you'd think I'd know this stuff by now.

I guess if you wanna aim for 700 sf in a day - you'll need temps to be below 78-degrees.....


The mOst we ever did was about 700 sf, with 4 guys, and about 10 hr days. Wide open working conditions. No curves. All 4 of us being under 30 yeas old. About 95-degrees out, blazing sun. 2 guys laying. 1 guy feeding pavers to them. And me cutting.
