You’ve probably seen bamboo tile, but have you seen some of the handcrafted wood tile from Colorado-based Everitt & Schilling Company. They offer a Trail Mix series (pictured above) that is made from the scraps — alder, poplar, oak, walnut, hickory – of cabinet and door makers. E&S also has a few country-luxe lines made with reclaimed barnwood and finished with water based, low VOC finishes. Re-Claimed Barnwood tiles come in 2×2, 4×4, 2×8, and 4×8 with various configurations. Pricing varies and can be provided upon request, though I understand it starts at around $24 per square foot.

That’s why the Everblue Training Institute is providing a great resource by training professionals to obtain BPI Certification.
This is a new “origami”-like home assembled earlier this year in Healdsburg, California, home to the H2 Hotel. The green prefab was designed, built, and assembled by Blu Homes and is the first re-designed Breezehouse on the West Coast (a home first made famous by Michelle Kaufmann). This video includes an interview with the owners, Steve and Jo Cooper, who share their reasons for purchasing the prefab.
