No longer just for foundations, poured concrete is taking center stage in homes and gardens
Poured concrete is a construction method that consists of pouring concrete into wooden forms that are held together with steel tie rods or tiebacks. The concrete is left to cure for several days before the forms are removed, leaving visible holes, also called tieback holes.
This contemporary home's exterior is a mixture of wood shingles and poured concrete.
These interior walls have the telltale signs of tieback holes, and they fit right in to this industrial-inspired space.
The tieback holes of this poured concrete balcony can be seen above the doorway.
A lovely bit of landscaping looks great when paired with a poured concrete garden wall.
Striking painted steel girders (painted construction yellow) complement the poured concrete walls and ceiling here.
