Amazing Curved Travertine Shower

by Peter Bales | 10th November 2014

Some projects stand out as being unique, but this one stands alone.  It was the largest and most complex shower I’ve ever created and it was a blast to work on.  At the core of the design is a wall that not only curves but slopes downward to enclose the shower.  One-of-a-kind! This project had [...] Read More

New Testimonial for Bathroom Remodel

by Peter Bales | 4th November 2014

From Sarah L. in Spencer, IN (near Bloomington). Peter Bales did a complete bathroom remodel for us this spring.  He completely gutted our old bathroom and managed to double the floor space for us by reconfiguring the floorplan of the area outside of the bathroom.  The old bathroom was incredibly tiny, dingy, and outdated.  He [...] Read More

Tile Floor Finishes Bathroom

by Peter Bales | 18th August 2014

I installed a tile shower and backsplash in this bathroom in Ellettsville, Indiana about a year ago. (Read about it here.)  They invited me back to finish the bathroom with a tile floor as well.

The niche is often the centerpiece [...] Read More

Herringbone Tile Floor Looks Like Wood

by Peter Bales | 12th July 2014

Some tile designs are very distinctive.  This project in Ellettsville (Bloomington), Indiana used a Herringbone pattern with tiles that looked like wood planks. Herringbone is a tile layout that involves alternating tiles diagonally from each other.  Being the nerd that I am, I looked it up and yes, the pattern does resemble a herring’s bones!  Read more [...] Read More

Toe Kick Saw- Right Tool For the Job

by Peter Bales | 1st July 2014

Sometimes I see a project and think: “There must be a better tool for this.”  Let me introduce you to a toe kick saw. For this recent project in Bloomington, Indiana I needed to cut the laminate flooring that was installed under the cabinetry.  I wanted to cut it right next to the cabinets, and [...] Read More

Basement Bathroom Expansion

by Peter Bales | 30th June 2014

This bathroom in Spencer, Indiana was about as small as possible when I started.  There was just enough room to fit everything in- barely!  That was about to change.  The homeowners and I came up with a plan to expand it into an adjacent space, nearly doubling the size of this basement bathroom. I started by [...] Read More
