originally. Two species of wood were used in the cabinets, walnut and alder. The lighter colored cabinets at the back wall are in alder with Zodiaq countertops and the backsplash utilizes colored sandblasted glass tiles. Photo Credit: John Sutton Photography
love the bar height countertops, what are they?
How thick are the concrete countertops?
How did the concrete get the gloss?
The concrete sub-contractor fabricator did the work - the concrete was probably sealed to get the sheen.
No, the concrete counter was made in a shop and transported to the house.
To VC Studio: Correct, at the time we did the concrete counters in question we probably had around five colors to choose from. On our East Bay Hills residence we gave the concrete subcontractor a Benjamin Moore paint color chip and they matched it. In our Navajo

I've had some mixed advice from people on whether or not to treat my newly poured concrete floors in my converted garage/entertaining area. I love the look of the natural concrete, but many have said that I'll be cleaning up dust all the time and that I should seal it in some way. What is your experience
Don't want a bunch of acrylic filler, yet not sure if regular cement will hold (and will it look like a bunch of blotches being lighter than the older concrete?). Thought about trying to sand the gouges down rather than fill. Did you face this problem in your project? If so, please let me know what you

I like the mix of wood cabinets and white countertop in this kitchen. Concrete floor just needs soap & water weekly mopping.Easy to maintain look.
this a concrete sink and who made it?
Is this a concrete sink and who made it?
Is the bathroom wall handmade with poured concrete or is it some sort of tile? If concrete, who made
kc_jackson, You can get the same look as the solid concrete wall you like with GFRC (glass fiber reinforced concrete) panels. The round depressions were created by the ties on the formwork. They could be easily replicated. Baldinger Studio, It's always
other pictures on your website as well). Love the heavy use of concrete throughout the project. the construction zone, ltd. Really nice work throughout the house! You guys have a great portfolio of work. You have several talented concrete fabricators in your area. Did you do this sink in house or was

make concrete counters shiny without polishing them. A quality concrete fabrication shop will not have an issue with cracks. Modern techniques and materials have improved, and continue to improve the quality of the concrete produced. Small surface cracks could develop over time as the concrete hardens

Hi Laura, Forgive the delay....busy times. The counters are plain, site-poured concrete.

like the wood grain in the board form concrete
we forget, concrete's appearance is not all light/dark and the articulation of formwork; it can also involve colored pigments. Assuming this photograph is telling the truth, the concrete was mixed with a pigment to give it this blue-gray appearance. The wood grain still found in the concrete, combined

lightness. I am a landscape designer and working to detail floating steps over a pond. So instead of concrete we are using 3" jet mist granite slabs (2'x5')...trying to figure out the minimum overhang over the foundation so it apears to be floating without fear of it breaking. I like the 3 1/2" treads you
Concrete steps with rusted unfinished exposed steel gives weight and mass to opening
1. What’s in the mix? When selecting a concrete mix, your construction team will factor in strength and performance specifications for the cured material. They may also consider sustainability factors, including whether to add coal fly ash to the mix.There is some debate over the greenness of coal fly
fly ash. Fly ash is a by-product of coal burning, and it contains heavy metals like lead and mercury. But when added to concrete mixes, it has several advantages, including that it increases recycled content and reduces the amount of Portland cement needed in the mix.

one find this, thats not made of concrete?
Hi Errica, I am part of a forum for concrete fabricators that started in the US and now has members all over the world. Many on the forum run professional shops, but quite a few are more along
this level of work in Texas*. I'm not saying that one doesn'e exist. Not every shop in the country is a member, but most are. High performance cast concrete is a small industry where many of us know each other or at least know of each other. There is a world map showing members, and there are very few
population density. *If I'm missing someone in that region I mean no offense :-) There are a growing number of shops that can produce high quality concrete, but it seems they are mostly near the East and West coasts. Any of us with a professional shop can ship to you. We are based in the Seattle area
