[clug] ssh to box, run shell command, then leave shell open?

I often find myself doing this at work:

$ ssh someone at remotebox
$ source lots_of_dev_variables.sh
$ cd /projects/blah/blah/blah
(then I do stuff in the shell)

Is it possible to automate the first three steps? There are a few
answers on stackoverflow for this kind of question but they often
involve running bash at the end of the ssh command, and that stuffs up
environment variables
