In another collaboration with Loren Wood Builders, we stepped in to tile two bathrooms and a kitchen backsplash while the house underwent renovation. The house was built with concrete blocks which added an interesting twist to preparing the substrate and evening out walls. Large 1′ x 2′ textured floor tiles were used in both bathrooms including the custom built shower. Classic glossy subway tiles line the shower and tub surround and both feature custom made slate shelves. Most unique of all are the blackboard countertops we installed to grace the vanities. Each is made of a solid sheet of blackboard slate salvaged from an old school house. The kitchens followed suit in greyscale with oversized elegant subway tile.
