Incredible lot of Calacatta Honed 1×2″ Basketweave Mosaic Tile $15.95SF
Italian Calacatta marble blocks are becoming so difficult to get hold of (in its premium pure white based form) that on this occasion the quarry did not even have enough material to make a full pallet of Basketweave. I can understand why. The quality of this Calacatta is exceptional. The base is white and the veining is perfect not too busy, just right. The downside is we only have 230SF of this incredible basketweave mosaic. If it is all sold by the time you see this post, I apologize. We have more on order, but when more will arrive is unclear as being a natural product we are subject to what comes from the mountain. 2014 has been a really difficult Calacatta year. I hope 2015 will be kinder to us.

Carrara Bianco Honeycomb 2″ Hexagon Marble Mosaic Tile available online from The Builder Depot $12.95SF
We updated this on June 29th 2016 to add in these two room scenes received from customers.
On the wall they used the Carrara Venato 3×6″ Subway Tile for $7.00 a Square Foot and for the edging used the Bardiglio 1×12″ border strip and then added 4×12″ Venato honed for edging that. The Bianco gives the look a nice contrast for grout on this tile they matched the Gray of the stone (very clever)!

Carrara Bianco Random Length polished Marble Mosaic Tile $11.75SF
Wow! What an amazing lot. It is always nice to open a crate of marble and see this. Carrara Bianco at its best. This is polished Bianco Random length marble mosaic (should be random length and width but that is just too long of a title). This incredible mosaic is priced at $11.75 a square foot.

It is official – well HGTV seems to think so, remodeling with Cararra Venato or Carrara Bianco from The Builder Depot customers get a 100% return on the bathroom renovation. Buying Carrara marble through us pays you! For 70% off the retail cost plus the enjoyment of having a beautiful bathroom the return is well beyond 100%. Want to add $20,000 to your net worth? Read on.
Just the product for Carrara bathroom of this size (click here to see) will cost $10k+ at retail prices. From The Builder Depot it will cost just $3,500. Then you have the tub and sink and fixtures (we do not sell these) so add in another $10,000. Then add in labor, we will assume that is equal at $10,000 each and taxes covers the other $5,000. This makes the cost of a Carrara marble bathroom from a local retailer at $35,000 (that is our quick math of how they got to $35K).
Purchased by one of our customers (and you know you can do better on installation and fixtures) would cost in total with labor and fixtures $15,500 (we have assumed you are e-commerce savvy and ordered your fixtures online as well). Our customers pay half the cost of the traditional sales channels which is (bare with me it is lengthy) quarry or factory to> distributor to> sub-distributor to> retail store to> Contractor to> Consumer (you). Our strategy is Quarry to> You. See that, one step! Savings passed onto you.
So if your home has dropped in value or simply treading water or perhaps you want a MORE THAN FREE BATHROOM (had to bold and italic that comment). You can order from The Builder Depot and with out help on the product end up paying $15K and adding $35K to the price of your home. You just earned $20,000.
