Concrete Floored Abode - a cabin on Lake Wenatchee

This home is a cutting edge design from floor to ceiling. The open tresses and gorgeous wood tones fill the home with light and warmth, especially since everything in the home is reflecting off the gorgeous black polished concrete floor.

As a material for use in the home, concrete is top notch. As the longest lasting flooring solution available concrete’s durability can’t be beat. It’s cost effective, gorgeous, long lasting and let’s not forget the possibility of ambient heat! There is truly nothing like the feeling of a heated bathroom floor warm against your socks in the morning.

Good design is easy to come by, but great design requires a whole package, bigger picture mentality. The Cabin on Lake Wentachee is definitely the whole package from top to bottom. Polished concrete is the new cutting edge of architectural design, and Gelotte Hommas has proven just how stunning the results can be.

Thanks for your question. These floors are amazing, we agree. The cabin’s concrete floor was finished with a “Tortoise Shell” Kemiko stain.
You can find all of Kemiko’s colors and finishes at their website: http://www.kemikoflorida.com/colors.php

Fireplace stone - HI - I like the stone you used for the fireplace? Is it a veneer and if so,could you tell me the brand and color? I have a brick fireplace and I am looking to cover it with stone. Thanks, Brad

Thank you for your comment Brad. The fireplace is actually quarried stone, averaging about 5 inches in thickness. The pattern is 50% squares and rectangles with the other 50% being ledge stone from the same quarry. There are also 6 larger rocks, which the owner personally selected, that the stone mason then worked into the design.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Stained Concrete FloorThe rich chocolate finish of this concrete floor evokes the warmth and richness of leather.How it was made: The color was achieved using a semitransparent concrete stain that comes in several colors. Why it works here: “We felt that the color we chose went well with the natural wood in the house,” says Curtis Gelotte, Principal at Gelotte Hommas Architecture. Concrete is also an economical finish in homes with radiant heat, like this one.Tip: Stained concrete floors will always have natural variations in color, because of the way concrete takes the stain. “You have to embrace its uncontrollability in a sense and go with the organic nature,” says Fisher.Installed by Clark Boa Construction
