The new space is progressing along, slow but sure! Here are some pics:
The garage door into the warehouse area has been trimmed out. Last week, Bandit trimmed the two bolts protruding from the concrete, but we still need to remove the parking barrier in front of the rollup door.
3d Printing Room:
In room #10, Alfred & his brother John built this great counter & shelf. I am thinking of stealing, er, borrowing the format for other places in the space. It looks very professional!
Room-yet-to-be-named, you know, for crafting & junk:
We have been referring to this room (#3 on the map, for those of you keeping count) as the Crafting room, but the people that do the crafts don’t seem to like that term, so I don’t know what we are calling it. In any case, if any of you were in the space in the first few weeks after the move, basically everything from the old space got dropped into rooms #2 & #3. They were jam-packed. I don’t know who started the cleanout process, but I was in the space one day when Walter & Alfred were finishing it. Addie chose this table to go into this room (though Walter & I were discussing how to re-do the damaged trim strip around the table, so it may temporarily move to the shop for repairs, oh, “someday”, I guess). I believe further plans call for a small counter on the east wall (where the blue cabinet is, in the below picture), and the french cleat system used in some of the shop areas may be installed in this room as well.
This room, #2 on the map, was also jam packed from stuff during the move. I was pleasantly surprised when I came in to find it almost empty! Walter tells me that he wants to switch rooms 5 & 2. Room #5 was marked down as Gaming & Arcade, and indeed, we put the asteroids cabinet there during the move. However, I agree with Walter… room 5 is narrow, and not really suited for the Arcade Cabinet (cabinetS now, I guess). Room #2 was marked for use as Library space & the open access PC. However, room #2 is a little large for “just” that, so I think switching the two rooms makes sense to me.
Electronics Lab workshop:
Bandit has made some great progress in the Electronics space. He has a very solid base built for the counters that will be set up. I think it might be strong enough to stand on! We were impressed enough that Alfred used the same techniques in building the counter in room 10, the 3d Printing room.
