I am certainly intrigued with that contraption. I scratch my head because it appears the brick material is made from concrete, so why couldn't you just pour a concrete mix and stamp it for a much cheaper price?

My guess is the locale wants to do it right for the novelty/historic restoration factor.

Personally I like brick roads.

I also really like driveways that leave room for grass.

That is a great picture Keith. It is quite obvious by the green grass that the owner does not have a jeep!

You got that right, no oil stains, axels and bumpers laying around...or a Jeep Forum sticker on the front door.

So it's a machine that sorts, aligns, and lays bricks? Neat...


Keith, I hate driveways like that... I'd be going nuts with RoundUp...

The cost of Roundup was just what I thought of. I did recently discover part of old Route 66 was actual brick. It's covered somewhere in this very readable travelogue.
