Fun Fact About Limestone....its actually harder and more durable than marble flooring. This is the shipment we have been waiting for since mid 2008. Its almost completely installed in one of my projects and my Client, as I knew he would, LOVES it. I ran 16" x 24" pieces in a running bond pattern for about 1,100 sq. ft. of the downstairs. Gorgeous. When viewed from a distance, the coloring is so even that it almost looks like concrete. Its smooth like butter. Its cool to the touch (which is welcomed in our southern CA climate). When you look at it up close, you can see all the subtle characteristics of this particular type of limestone. Little fossils and shells and natural bits. It took a bit to get it right. The first shipment didn't match up correctly. It went back. Then we waited a long time for a new batch. It was worth the wait.
I heart Limestone in a huge way. HUGE!
