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.

what is the wood used on the wall slats? I may do this in my small basement remodel using re-used fir.

Thank you for your question. The wood used here is Pine, however any wood slats would work.

Thank you for your question. These floors are stunning.
The cabin’s floor is concrete that was finished with a “Tortoise Shell” Kemiko stain.
You can find all of Kemiko’s colors and finishes at their website:

Thanks for your help with this. Sadly, there does not seem to be anything quite so advanced here in the UK. Grrr

Thank you! Do you happen to know the designer of the fabric? I've searched all over Calico Corners and cannot find it. Thank you for your help! I'm just in love with that fabric!

I don't know the designer of the fabric. Please feel free to contact the interior designer of this home directly. I'm sure she would be able to assist you. Her name is Kathy O'Neill and her website is
