Cool House Tour 2008

Both of these houses were on the Cool House Tour of 2008. They were newly constructed homes, designed to fit into their spot in the neighborhood and to optimize energy efficiency. They have a bit of a contemporary edge to them while maintaining a certain warmth and "homey-ness".

Unfortunately, this feature changed during production and we were unable to find a revision to reflect this new design.

Cork wall - Do you need to wash the corks and dry them in the sun prior to making a cork backsplash wall?

Do you have any suggestions for a chair rail? - I'm creating a chair rail for my kitchen - approx. 10" wide - 16" long. The corks are laid out in alternating angles so there will be some spaces at the top and bottom of the design which I can fill in with glass or marbles. What would you use for backing (to attach the corks on? I don't want to attach the corks directly to the wall. I'm planning to do 1/2" border at the top and bottom so I suppose I could make a mini box to lay them all in and attach that to the wall. What materials might you use? Thanks!!

A piece of quarter inch luan plywood with a glued and stapled sheet of 1/16" cork. The cork to cork should give you the uniform bond your looking for and a background that looks good without having to add odds and ends.

What a great cork backsplash! Who makes this, and does it come in any other-than-natural colors?

Were the corks applied directly to the wall or was something put over the wall before applying?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

4. Cork. Not just for the wine connoisseur, this eclectic backsplash style works for just about anyone who has the time to find the corks and install them.If you're not a collector, you can buy wine corks from the restaurants and bars that save them.More ways to reuse corks, including a DIY backsplash
Backsplashes. Cork is one of the ecofriendliest options for wine stoppers. Rather than having wine corks recycled, consider making an upcycled and durable backsplash when you're done with your favorite reds and whites.
