Victorian ceramic tile tile fitter pays for ‘terrazzano ceramic tile’
Posted On August 9, 2021
A Victorian ceramic fitter paid for the creation of an “terrazza ceramic tile” in her home to “make up for lost time” when she had to sell it.
The custom tile was purchased by owner Stephanie Houghton after her son, who has autism, began to get into trouble and would not stop crying.
“I didn’t want to take up a lot of space, but I wanted something to make up for the time I spent on that,” Ms Houghson told news.com.au.
“The kids didn’t like it.
They were looking at me like I was crazy.”
Ms Houghston bought the tile for $50,000 from a local tile seller, but it was a costly investment for the Victorian ceramicist.
“We were hoping it would last me for another year or two and then we would sell it,” Ms Hobson said.
“But unfortunately, I was able to sell that tile in a week and it just got really expensive.”
Ms Hobson, who runs a home decor business in the suburb of Coober Pedy, spent $40,000 to build a new tile, which was installed last week.
“It’s really lovely,” Ms Hibbitt said.
She has used the tile in her terraces and on her terrace, which she has also decorated.
“For me, it’s like a dream come true, it really is.”
She said she hopes to be able to decorate the house again in two years.
“Now it’s a little bit different, but at the same time it feels really good to be back.”
