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".

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.

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.
