Maker space – completed!

The maker-space is finally complete. Well, “complete” in the sense that it’s 99% complete. There are always minor jobs and additions to do, as is always the case with work-spaces; they keep evolving.

Maker space (transforming)

Finally got started on the workshop. I removed the wood and nails that provided the makeshift storage among the beams, then removed the faulty fluorescent light before treating all the remaining woodwork with a universal wood treatment solution. The walls were then painted with white masonry paint, and the metal beams with green metal paint.

I’m waiting for the floor paint to be delivered, and once that’s done I can think about getting the electrics installed, and fitting a bench and storage.

Maker space (prelude)

It was a long time coming, but I have finally moved house! After the chaos, stress and confusion of moving my prediction that I would have a functioning maker-space set up “very quickly” was hopelessly optimistic!

I’m making the setting up of this space a priority. It kind of makes sense to; a functioning workshop will be useful when working of the rest of the house.
