i have a 19' X 11' wall in which i want to install a recessed showcase
in the size of 10' X 2.5'. The showcase will be 10" deep, i.e. 4"
recessed + 6" outside. This is an interior wall between two commercial
spaces and which has 1-3/4"X4" studs every 16".
Is the opening for the recessed showcase within the safe limits of how
much the reframing of the wall can bear?
Without knowing if it is a load bearing wall no one will be able to help
you. You also may have problems because it is an opening between two
commercial spaces. Those things are generally covered under different and
far more restrictive codes than residential.
I fear a lot of people have made errors when they don't know for sure.
It is especially difficult here since it is a commercial environment and
construction standards can be different than most people are accustomed to.
Considering the consequences of making a mistake, it would be a good idea to
