And no brown paneling anywhere!!!!!!

Looks good, but how can a fireplace be made of rubber tires?

That's the recycling they've developed. It's exactly like real brick but about half the weight & completely fireproof.

They are also cut to fit with a wet saw, & being so random with different depths in it's construction, it has to be constantly leveled during install. They look like brick, feel like brick so unless you're told, you'd never know it was made of recycled materials. The hearth stones are the only flat part about them.

Very nice! A labor of love. 

I even found a cat tree to match the carpet!!!

cool - how awesome

Oh Patricia I love the remodeling.

And of course the cat -- such a beautiful cat you have.

Lovely - just wonderful work.

Congrats that it's finished at last! And it looks great!

Patricia, I really like the color scheme....silver and grey....very modern.  OK, you have to explain the rug made from pop bottles, please!!  Never heard of that.  Sounds like this was a very environmentally friendly renovation.  I love the fireplace.  How awesome it is to reuse materials for totally unrelated purposes. 


Recycling has become a big thing & lots of oddball stuff is getting made into many products. No idea how it's done though. Everything has turned out so well, with the exception of the 4 month bs we got with the fireplace, but now it's finally done properly, it's beautiful. Was kind of shocked when told it was recycled rubber tires, but it's great stuff. Looks like real brick but not as heavy & of course the charcoal/greyish color went with the whole scheme here. Walls are very light grey on one side & one shade of darker grey on the opposite side. All new baseboards & crown mouldings as well so everything looks completely different. Next will be the external siding, new front & back doors, & the windows replaced, in the spring.   

Is the fireplace one, large molded piece of rubber, or is it made of of individual 'bricks?'
