Remodeling Porn

Projects for others have been sucking my time like a vampire on speed.
Here is some light remodeling porn from my current client project.
The Setup: Build an Office/Counter/Customer/Area in a building bearing the scars of previous remodeling projects. Recycle and reuse as much as possible.
The space from the front

The space from the rear.
Parts2_1
The Post has gotta go!
Parts1_1
Slash open the ceiling, inspect the framing.
Parts5_1
Build a box beam to be covered with plywood to carry the weight across the ceiling.
Parts6_1
Score some recycled cabinets, figure size of counter, build front wall.
Counter2_1
Talk with clients, figure workflow with recycled cabinets, build side wall.
Counter4_1
Set rear cabinets, figure rear wall and doors.
Counter5_1
In my continuing quest to break the Hinged Door Mafia, Pocket Doors get framed in. Electrician begins rough-in. Start Drywall on exterior.
Counter6
Pocket Door framing Details. The cabinets are Commercial Units. Normally these cabinets would run you between 2-500 bucks a lineal foot, Counters are extra.
Pocket1_1
Yes there are 2.

Steel Stud Soffits
Counter10_1
Drywall over soffits. The triangular wings sticking out the front are the brackets for the counter, which is two layers of 3/4″ plywood covered with 16 gauge stainless steel. The counter is 10 feet long and 38″ deep. Heavier than hell. But wait! There is more!
Counter11_1
The back of the counter has overhead storage for the counterman as well as wall units on the side.
Counter14_1
Counter is in and drywall is almost ready for taping.
Counter12_1
Another view of the counter.

Was it good for you too?
