Fu-Tung Cheng's surprise bestseller
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.
At last! Clearly this is the book many have been waiting for. Although
Bob Harris's guides to
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....
