Studio Build: Buffon Residence Part 1

The next project is concrete countertops for a StudioBuild house renovation. Sorry for the bad cellphone pictures, I will get some better ones soon. The kitchen has a large run along the wall, an island with a cantilever section, and an upper section on the pass through to the living room. The mix is dark grey gfrc with a sprayed face and hand packed backer coat. 

This is the first of many molds. There are two pass through pieces with cutouts for columns. The melamine sides were glued to the base with silicone and supported with blocks tacked into the base. We will be reusing these for the full-width sections.
Yesterday we shot the first section to work out the kinks and will be getting ready for some full production soon.
