I subscribe to this, starting to wonder why. To put it lightly I was taken back to see the residential best of the year award, awarded for this bath. I know of and respect the company. But this leads me to wonder if anyone else even submitted into the competition or if it is, as put on my facebook post a political victory. Seems like a nice install, but lacking any real creativity to win a first place "best of the year" award.http://www.tilemagonline.com/Articles/Breaking_News/BNP_GUID_9-5-2006_A_10000000000001094007

Jack,

its not the 1 bathroom pictured that takes the Residential award.......it's the "project".

On October 17, Tile Contractors’ Association of America (TCAA) will honor outstanding projects in both Commercial and Residential tile installations. The awards will be presented during TCAA’s 103rd annual convention in San Diego, CA. The Project of the Year winners are:

its a 500 unit residential project along with tons of other area's tiled.

looks like they just showed 1 bathroom picture and that's misleading to some.
but the "project" as a whole takes the cake for "Residential Category".

Fair enough Brian. Who ever wrote that article could have added a single link somewhere in the description. I clicked all around it and it appeared to be as simple as described.

true. I'm really hating Yahoo and the BS articles they put up.
some have hook titles that mislead you.
like, "kid beats his dog"
so you go to the article and the kid won a race against the dog or something. :complain:

Regardless of internet skills or the lack thereof.... The work is still pretty bland. I don't care if there is 10 million worth of it.
