The Encinal Street house has 7 rooms with skim coat overlays including a shower. A particular technique known as Batik was used to make some of the patterns in the floors and countertops. Most of the overlays are over a wooden sub-floor so a special treatment for skim coat preparation had to take place prior to the overlays themselves. After the grey or white colored skim coats were applied various patterns were drawn, saw cut and then stained. A clear epoxy was used on all of the skim coats that are shown as well as on the concrete countertops which were a special blend of TRC concrete.
