comment How can I connect a 120V compressor to a 3 phase WYE 208 electrical system?
@AimForClarity No, there is a huge difference between neutral and ground. Ground is a safety system, and should never have current on it (unless there is a fault). Neutral is a current carrying conductor, meaning it carries current during normal operation.

comment What is the best way to lay brick pavers on concrete porch
The steps you describe above, are for setting bricks in the ground. How would you expect the gravel and sand to stay in place on a raised surface? To set bricks on a raised concrete surface, you'll use some form of mortar or construction adhesive.

Your 208Y/120 4 wire wye system will have 3 ungrounded conductors; each at 208V potential to each other, and one grounded conductor; at 120V potential to any ungrounded conductor. The grounding conductor is a safety system, and provides a safe path to earth ground. When the service enters your home, the grounded conductor will be bonded to earth ground to insure it's at 0V potential to ground. This is why it's called the "grounded conductor".

@AimForClarity No, you shouldn't do anything else yourself. You should contact a local licensed Electrician, or a friend who knows what they are doing to finish the project for you. An electrical system is made up of 3 types of conductors, ungrounded, grounded, and grounding. ungrounded conductors are your "hot" conductors, grounded conductors are "neutral" conductors, and grounding conductors are equipment grounding conductors or "earth" conductors.
