Really like the floor. I was wondering how the wood and tile was joined.

I'm concerned about the wood expanding and contracting. We live in the adirondack mountains where the temperature and humidity fluctuates alot. Also did you have to use a special width and depth board to accomodate the tile size? I really like the design and would love to make it work in our house. Thanks in advance for your reply.

Thanks for your interest! The wood will expand and contract naturally with the humidity and changes in temp. The trick is to not grout where the tile meets the wood but use caulk instead.

How did you get the height of the tile and wood to be level???

we did a floor similar to this and we installed the wood and then in-between the wood we added a tile underlayment that brought the height up so we could add thin set and then the tile to be flush.
The use of caulk is a very good idea.
