About Brick House

Brick House Tile Co., Inc. was established in 1984 in Keene, New Hampshire by Alice Toepfer and her son John. Alice, who turned 65 that year, had spent her life raising five boys and now wanted to create her own business. Alice and John experienced first hand the frustration of buying ceramic tile locally during remodeling projects, they knew that if people could see the exquisite tile choices available the tile would sell itself.
Located in a brick house built in 1860, Brick House Tile Co. has seven showrooms of ceramic, porcelain, and natural stone tile displayed in a farm house setting complete with a barn where the manufacturing of Cider Press Tile takes place. This hand crafted tile is known for its crawling glazes that complement high fired tile. The staff at Brick House is trained to assist in both the designing of your dream project and the installation processes involved, ensuring that you are satisfied with your tile for years to come. The greatest testament to the values set by Alice is the large amount of repeat business created over the past thirty years.

Cider Press Tile

Cider Press Tile is the newest addition to the Brick House Tile family. As of January 2009 BHT acquired Cider Press Tile from Matthew Barnes, who created Cider Press Tile in 1998 and has been making beautiful hand made tile ever since. Located in Portland Maine, Cider Press became well known for its crawling glazes, which complements its high fired tiles, to the rich matte glazes that reverberates the shades of the Earth. Cider Press is also well known for its customer service and willingness to go the extra mile for its customers, something that coincides completely with the guiding principles of Brick House Tile. Nothing will change on that front as we will continue the traditions and policies set forth by Matthew Barnes.
