hi @lindseylanee the backsplash is the next project the owners will be taking on and will be made form pressed tin, traditionally used for ceilings.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

One of the most successful aspects of the home's design is how it's heated and cooled. In winter sunlight streams through the northern windows, "giving significant heat, which is retained by the solid concrete slab floor and the rammed-earth walls," Thomas says. This is supplemented by a few hours of underfloor heating each day, supplied by solar-heated hot water pipes inside the concrete slab (hydronic underfloor heating). The result is a very comfortable living temperature through winter. The house has no active cooling other than ceiling fans. It is designed with a mix of high- and low-level windows, which create cooling breezes through each room. "In the heat of the day, the house is shut down, and we rely on the concrete slab and rammed-earth walls to soak up the heat, which keeps temperature inside down," says Thomas.
