I haven't installed any. Used some in a booth actually at a homeshow we did. Just wanted something a little different. First of all these things are heavy, over 50lbs per brick for the larger stones. We actually broke 2 of the larger stones while setting them because they are so long and heavy. We weren't dropping them but just setting them in place and they split. Could have just been a bad batch or from the cold weather, i dont know. We didn't have a huge problem getting them to line up, but it was also just a booth so we weren't going for "perfect." I heard about the color fade, but according to my rep this has been addressed. As far as the response, mine was very similar to yours Jim. A lot of people liked it, didn't believe it was concrete etc. I, like you am not a big fan of them. The only picture I thought that you posted that looks remotely decent is the second picture of the timberstone. I don't think it should be used as a stand alone paver, but instead more as an accent as e-mans used in a few photos. They look good in those pictures. The one that did catch my eye a little more is the barn plank step that came out. I thought that was pretty cool, and could have some good applications, but again thats more of an accent feature.
