Why are you thinking about them?

As a patio they are much cooler than concrete , a big plus.

I've been doing research on using limecrete on top of a plywood floor, as a mortar for laying tiles as the final floor finish. Our floor is raised about 2.5 feet above ground level, on top of a post and pier foundation. What is the style of floor you are looking to use limecrete on?
