The photo to the left shows the Kitchen floor just after it was installed; early in the renovation before any cupboards or countertops were added. The windows in the 105 year old building were all replaced after vandals knocked -out the old ones. The window shown in this photo will have Mexican tile installed as a boarder-trim around it to match the tile on the counter-top rather than replace the wood trim.

This photograph shows the tile finished in the shower and pedestal-sink area of the same bathroom shown in the first photo above. A corner of the saltilo tile floor installed also by the artist is visible under the sink. Since this renovation was still "in-progress" when the photo was taken, the wall above the sink had not been re-plastered or the trim painted yet.
