Jack's Double ShowerInside Jack's shower for two are several shower heads and controls, a bench, travertine shelving, porcelain soap dishes and plenty of light (on a dimmer, of course). When used properly, glass block can add lightness and beauty: the light greens to the blues and tans.

Jack's Cherry KitchenJack preferred dark wood cabinets. We found an imported granite with neutral dark green and black hues. Behind the counter is tiled engineered stone, which is a composite of epoxy resins and pulverized stone, and absolutely impermeable.

Removing the Bottom ChordPutting skylights in this kitchen was a huge challenge; the architect said it couldn't be done.

Light and Natural MaterialsI added a special eyeball fixture to illuminate the wall behind the toilet. The wall and floor are both sealed travertine for easy, low maintenance cleaning. The little drywall in the bathroom, including the ceiling were primed and painted with and industrial interior oil paint with natural iron oxide pigments to inhibit the formation of mold and endure repeated washings.
