Why Concrete Jungle?

When the idea to start the blog was hatched one of the reasons was in building houses here - first my own, then my parents', then my son's and helping one of my good friends - the common denominator in style was using polished concrete in ways I hadn't seen before, hence the 'concrete jungle' name. I have been able to work with a very skilled gentleman from Myanmar who thinks and often improves on my initial ideas. I started using polished concrete just for floors with the contemporary style of architecture, but the use of concrete quickly expanded into shelves, beds and's quite fabulous when you move in or out as most of the big items do stay put.
