    I am really jealous of the pics and comments that you post from your experiences with marty and the crew. I need to put some money aside this year to attend at least one of his symposiums next year

    How are the projects coming along? My assumption is good and there has been no time to update your thread.

    Etwman I was needing some info on marble paver installation. I was wondering how you handle the initial compaction. Also how you make sure your joints are filled without the use of a compactor. Thanks for any info.

    I would not pre or post compact travertine that is 1" thick. It's too brittle and you are setting yourself up for issues.

    Thanks, also what kind of edge restraint do use with the thinner pavers? The marble pavers are 1 in. thick.

    The same place you would buy travertine from should have a low profile edge restraint you could buy also.

    On the pool area in your previous post where you used the travertine, what was the thickness? Also someone had told me to compact the bedding sand, I have never heard of this. Also on the joist, did you use polymeric or regular sand. The reason I have the questions is I have heard several different opinions on this subject. The manufacturer says to use a half inch of sand, but also states to follow icpi standards. Any issues with compacting close to a concrete pool? The general on the job had some worries when I told him the compaction I would need. I know you are busy and I appreciate any other info you might have. Thanks again.
