Office Remodel

I don’t do a lot of commercial work, but I will for certain situations, namely friends.  My mechanic and former employer from WAY back called me to refresh his office space.  I wonder why?

The paneling had to go.  Scratch that,  everything had to go.  We did a full gut of the office space.  Lights, ceilings, walls, floors all replaced.

We had planned on simply replacing the ceiling tiles on the drop ceiling and painting the cross members, but because it was so old it was easily damaged beyond repair.  We redid the entire ceiling and installed new LED office lights.  This was the first and hopefully last drop ceiling I install.  I think it turned out well.

The next phase was drywall.  We did a light knock down texture painted gray.  Trim was a nice cream color and doors a deep red.

The old used-to-be-red vinyl tiles were replaced with a nice ceramic.  This was installed by a sub-contractor as I’m no good at tile work.  

Once the walls were painted, tile work done, and trim installed it was time to install a coffee bar.  We went with a budget friendly option by using inexpensive yet high quality stock cabinets.  These were solid oak face frames and drawer fronts with complete plywood construction.  NEVER buy particle board cabinets.  We stained them and installed them.  A local countertop company installed some nice granite.

Cleaned up and ready to move back in…

Finished

A huge THANK YOU to the owners of B&B Automotive for allowing Dailey Woodworks to renew your office space.  If you live in the Brazos Valley and need a good mechanic they are the people to go to.

Husky Office Space

My multi-month office project is now complete!  This space was built in a ~10,000sq/ft warehouse to be the office for the local HVAC company.  The owner framed it out, planning to do all the work himself. He ran out of time and hired me to take it from studs to a finished 900sq/ft office space.  I did a little bit of everything.  I did all the insulation, drywall, drywall finishing, painting, doors, and trim.

The owner and I laid a lot of the tile together.  I didn’t have much experience doing the tile, neither did he, and we couldn’t find a local tile guy.  We did about 2/3 of the office space, then decided tile wasn’t for us.  He was able to find a guy locally who was willing to work on trade for some HVAC work on his house.  Win-Win-Win
