At this time everyone is over our excitement about how the house ‘works’ and comes together-what is it going to look like finished!So again our driving force has been a balance between beauty/function & cost. Our palette began with the hardwood floors- American Walnut. We are our own worse clients, we bought the floors before we finished designing the house. BAD,BAD, BAD, but it was a deal! If you are going to do this, it is a gamble. We will see if it works out soon. Since all the walls are white and the house is flooded with light, we wanted a strong grounding force with the floors. The tile for the bathrooms are made of recycled tile from Crossville (we get points for local production). The entry tile will be from our hometown favorite of DEX Industries, made of concrete. We struggled departing from the natural stone as a selection, but thinking about the process of quarrying natural stone in a distant place-it seemed obvious. I think supporting the local economy, is the greenest move you can make!
