Beyond the Empty Nest

Tucked in a quiet Marblehead neighborhood, this quintessential Cape style home is now an updated residence for an empty nest couple with a bevy of frequently visiting grandchildren. The client has happily traded the luxury of “living in a big house” for the pleasure of easy maintenance in a jewel box of a small house.

Thanks for your questions htache and aquatime. We actually had the tile contractor frame out the area and provided him with the owners sea glass collection. We aren't sure how it is applied exactly, but I'm sure it's very similar to laying regular tile. Not sure if that helps you two.
