Lol, we sure as heck wouldn't have been able to get all that done if it had snowed 5" while we were framing.

Good deal, I can guess at a few places it will go in that area. Hopefully it doesn't get too warm or you might deal with that string cheese manufacturing smell. Its cool to see people so close by on here.

Nice going.

Couple questions.

It looks like it's just set on gravel. Correct?

Do you use PT for the bottom plate? Are the posts anchored at all?

What are your post-to-beam, and knee brace connections? Through-bolted?

Sorry. More than a couple.

Here's my latest.

Little commercial remodel.

Convert from retail to food service.

Commercial kitchen, two ADA bathrooms, etc.

Can't get under the building, so had to cut out the floor to run the plumbing.

First pic is a before.

Gravel pad is just to hold the concrete floor up.

Posts are buried 4', on top of a 16" dia. precast concrete footing.

2x8 PT splash board

Post to beam and brace connections are structural screws with blocking underneath.

Not a fan of farm sinks. Had two to fit today.

My process is, fabricate opening smaller than needed, make template, transfer template to plywood, test fit plywood template, fix to cabinet, rout opening, test fit sink.

First pic is of the drywall shim template on the second sink. Did not take photo of first drywall shim template.

My process for farmhouse sinks is to:

Step 1. Fabricate opening smaller than needed

Step 2. Test fit

Step 3. Adjust

Step 4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 somewhere between 5 and 50 times till it fits.

Using drywall shim templates makes this a one and done.
