Concrete at Home: Innovative Forms and Finishes: Countertops, Floors, Walls, and Fireplaces
Title: Concrete at Home: Innovative Forms and Finishes: Countertops, Floors, Walls, and Fireplaces

ISBN: 156158682x

From the Publishers:
Fu-Tung Cheng's surprise bestsellerConcrete Countertops paved the way for a fresh look at a familiar surface. His new book moves beyond the kitchen and transforms this commonplace material into an elegant medium that can be used throughout the house. Combining cutting-edge design with helpful how-to information, Concrete at Home offers ingenious ideas for planning and building walls, fireplaces, mantels, hearths, and exterior and interior floors, as well as tips on incorporating architectural elements such as counters, sinks, columns, and water pieces into the project. The construction of forms, footings, and ties is detailed in clear, easy-to-follow instructions, and special attention is given to finishing techniques, including adding color, texture, and inlays.

From Builders Booksource:
At last! Clearly this is the book many have been waiting for. Although Bob Harris's guides to Stained Concrete and Stamped Concrete beat Cheng's to the market, Concrete at Home has so much more aesthetic value that  the choice is either buy them all, or just Concrete at Home. Obviously we think you should buy them all....
