    Here is an addition I’m doing now.

    It comes out to about 4,500 SF under roof.

    3 stories. Big project for a one-man-show. 😮

    ….And this one is a little commercial remodel.

    It’s going to be a wine bar.

    I really enjoy commercial work. It’s more demanding, more regulations and such.

    Unfortunately, I don’t get the chance to do a ton of it. Maybe that’ll change. 🙂

    First pic is how it looked when I started.

    When the kitchen is done, I’ll post some better before-and-after pics.

    Thanks for sharing the pictures. Do you get involved in the design versus following the client’s plans. The design part would be a lot of fun I would think.

    I do.

    I can save the client a lot of money and potential headaches, by getting involved early.

    On that commercial remodel, I’ve done all the demo and framing, plumbing, electrical, low voltage/data, drywall, paint, tile, trim, fixtures.

    Only thing I’m subbing is vinyl-plank flooring, and a couple roof penetrations.

    Gets kind of crazy bouncing between all those different trades, especially on a relatively smaller sized project. 😆

    Bigger projects I’ll sub out drywall. I really hate sanding the stuff. 😮

    Nice looking work.
    That is a big one for one man. I’m in the same boat working solo most all the time.

    Thank you.

    I did the block on that myself.

    One reason I went with block is because of the scale. It’s easier to lay up a block foundation solo, rather than setting and bracing forms by yourself.

    Price-wise, it was almost the same, probably a little cheaper with block.

    That was my biggest block job I’d ever done. I’m happy with how it came out. Less than an 1/8″ in level, and about a 1/4″ out of square in a 36’x42′ basement.

    After 6 1/2 months, I finally got the permit for the Wine Bar. 😮

    Unbelievable.

    I did some of the work while I was waiting, buy still had to keep stuff open. Now I can really get rolling.

    Fortunately, I have a really good inspector. He complained a little about the work being done before the permit was issued. I just said, don’t spend so long on plan check then.

    You are right that is unbelievable. Too bad it took a winter project and moved into summer.

    Evidently, they have only 2 people doing plan check and inspections in the City. One is in training. 😮

    They ended up borrowing a part-time inspector from the County.

    There’s a lot of folks pissed at the City right now.
