Up-cycle Second Hand Broken Tiles

Not too long ago, Louis renovated a bathroom for one of Small Scale Engineering’s clients. The previous tiler used large, good quality ceramic tiles for this bathroom. Although all the tiles, but one, broke on removal, Louis brought the old tiles back home in the hopes that we might be able to use them on the Container House Project.

Awesome Wood & Resin Floor

This wood and resin floor has to be the most exciting project we have worked on to date. I have been looking forward to accomplishing this task, ever since we decided to do it.

Fitting a Close Coupled Toilet (Guest Bathroom)

Kevin says that plumbing is a thankless job. If you do it correctly, it’ll all be covered up and no one will ever appreciate your flawless joins and straight pipes. He’s right. Plumbing is one of those things you don’t want to think about it. Thinking about it usually means there’s a problem such as a water leak. But despite this, Kevin and Louis have been hard at work on the plumbing for the guest bathroom including fitting a close coupled toilet.
