Laying Redwood Decking

Project: Craftsman Bungalow, Episode 9, Part 2

The bathroom gets a real treat of a floor tile treatment: green, black, and white hexagonal tiles are laid in an eye-catching pattern that harkens back to the 1920s. New kitchen cabinets are installed, which have been custom-made to match the vintage one purchased by the homeowners. Also, construction of the redwood deck begins on the back porch.
