Ty W. of Texas – Casa2G 90

Excerpt from Ty’s Submission Form:

“…We wanted to create a Santa Fe feel with the cooking island, thus our use of earth tones and the Saltillo and Talavera tiles. We just finished the build, so I am still in the curing process and haven’t cooked in the oven yet. When I do, I’m sure what I love about the oven will change on a daily basis. Right now, I just get giddy even looking out the window at it…”
