E. 8th Street House
floors are sealed concrete and the base trim clear aluminum. Where walls are not exposed CMU, they are painted white. By design, the fireplace provides a singular source of warmth, the gas flame emanating from a bed of crushed glass, surrounded on three sides by a polished concrete hearth.
Just wondering what type of sealer was used on the concrete blocks?

Since concrete block is porous, these are painted on the exterior. The interior face can be left untreated or use a clear sealer (with a matte finish).

Wow, this is concrete block? I'm not a fan of the overall shape of this house and strange window configuration (just my personal aesthetic) but makes me think concrete block could be a viable finish instead
Love the patterned, rectangular shapes and textures of these concrete blocks.

Where on earth did you find the concrete squares for your privacy fence? Are they vintage? I cannot find a source!
Hello - great question. These concrete screen wall blocks were ubiquitous a half a century ago, but were a challenge to track down today. We did find a couple of sources in Arizona and California
masonry material provider, County Materials. They actually had the molds. Took them a while to find them, but then did a great job of making us new blocks from the original molds. Thanks for the question and your interest in your project.
Love the concrete block instead of solid stucco wall, in places...

To develop the latter, Bruns created a series of courtyards, the first of which begins at the entrance, which is enclosed by a midcentury concrete screen. “These used to be ubiquitous in the 1960s, but the supplier had to find the molds and dig them out," he says.

Walnut Avenue Kitchen
Contemporary kitchen with traditional painted frame and panel cabinets, butcher block island, and precast concrete countertops and backsplash. Modern stainless steel Wolf range and Subzero refrigerator accent traditional touches of cabinetry, farm house sink, stained oak floors, and coffered beam ceiling
I see the island is butcher block, what are the other counters?
Where are the seams in the main concrete countertop with the sink?
Can you tell me the color information for the concrete countertops?
The other counters are pre-cast concrete.
Concrete countertops and white painted cabinets
Concrete counters - butcher block island
Concrete tile backspash, maybe could use for sink island
olive green concrete counters with white farmhouse sink sunken deep in thick counter, maybe helps to avoid backsplashing

it is on wheels. Is there a reason that you chose to have this be mobile on wheels vs stationary or imbedded into the concrete?
What is the stone on the wall? Or is it concrete?

Nice stain for wood with cmu block walls.
