    Looks real nice. Pavers look nice, don't see that too often. Are they on sand or concrete, surface looks smooth, can't tell. How long have you been working on the building? Looking to start a 24x37.5 pole barn this fall.

    Since your wife wanted pavers, I sure hope she helped you out installing them!

    I was considering pavers myself. Looks good. Let us know how the pavers work out for you. One nice thing with pavers you never need to worry about cracks in the concrete.

    Is the floor pitched to the back?

    Yes it is pitched to the back for water runoff.
    So far the pavers have held up.The only thing that is parked in there is my tractor and my wifes car.
    I will be putting an addition on the side for the tractor this fall.

    I like the looks of the pavers, a lot of older houses around here have chimney bricks for the floor. There use to be a some large brick companys and the bricks were cheap.

    For anyone thinking of pavers, get the good ones if you intend to put weight on them. I've put in several paver surfaces. When I used Unilock pavers, they were indestructible. When I used the on sale ones from a big box store, I got cracking and edge chipping.

    Don't use brick. If you have a location that stays moist, brick will deteriorate. Most are made for building locations where they will drain and dry off after they get wet. A brick floor should be laid over concrete with a moisture barrier.
