1. check with electrical team on some of the rusty square conduit and
83c has subspaces consisting of:

outlets; should they come off or not?
  
* The Main / Meeting Room
+
* front wall attached to the janky breaker box

* south wall front

* south wall rear
 +
* hole in north wall with closed box over it

2. document the prep needs, with yr pix, so ppl can just go do a small

amount of work when they have a chance.  This should include scraping,
 +
as long as we note that cleanup is part of that task.  Of particular
 +
importance are the rat-sized holes (there were 3 IIRC).
  
==== Academic / Classroom ====
+
* pull nails/screws/staples
consisting of conference / classrooms, areas suitable for learning, planning, and colaboration.  Room ideas are:
+
* scrape peeling paint (and clean up)
* Dungeons and Dragons room: a rectangular room with a board-room style table in it, walls covered in bookshelves and whiteboards.
+
* remove conduit as OK'd by electrical team
* Math Room: Krutcher suggests that rather than a "conference room" style classroom, maybe we want a "math room" -- essentially a room with a couple of small tables, some chairs or couches, lots of pacing space, and a bunch of whiteboards; the idea is to facilitate active, creative discussion.
+
* sand down rust on conduit that will remain
* Study Rooms:  Small rooms just big enough for four people to crowd into or one person to spread out in.
+
* remove molding with employee info, near front door
* The chill space / lounge conceptually could belong to this Zone.
+
* remove curtain rod and conduit used as clothing rack
* Library -- bookshelves, chairs/cushions/lighting for individual reading, some tables for quiet study
+
* pull off phone cords and jacks (but not alarm cords)
* Possible to have a graphics/drafting area? Light table and drafting tables w/maylines, ETC.
+
* patch holes w/Bondo (big holes) or spackle (small holes). may need a
 +
bit of sheetrock patch for VERY big holes
 +
* remove mini desk
 +
* remove shelf with shrine, or not
 +
* vaccuum & wipe windowsills, scrape as needed
  
==== Make / Build====
 
Consisting of shop and lab space.  Ideas include:
 
* Dirty Shop -- the machine room / fab space for actually sawing, hammering, lathing and milling.
 
* Clean Shop -- electronics lab filled with benches for soldering &c.
 
* Craft Space -- suitable for textile work &c
 
* Darkroom -- For developing pictures; double doors to allow entry when dark; red lighting
 
* Chem lab -- space suitable for chemistry / bio work
 
* A/V studio -- soundproof room.
 
** big enough for a small band and mics
 
** greenscreen & camera recording
 
** Ham shack -- Amaetur radio operating room.  Needs good way to get feed lines to the roof.
 
  
Common needs:
+
3. once walls are up, go around and verify that all prep is complete
* positive airflow ventilation to outside
+
 
* pressurized hoses to operate tools, blow / suck debris
+
 
* possible water & drainage hookup
+
4. mask floors, windows, etc
* strong power lines
+
 
* security / fencing-off for party times
+
* see notes on rear nasty stairwell
* sound barrier to other zones
+
* mask to first joint on electrical items
 +
 
 +
 
 +
5. prime, using sprayer in most areas but rollers in some:
 +
 
 +
* dj booth (to not crap on camera laptop)
 +
* small office (not painting the inside, don't spray over the top)
 +
* we don't care about the ladder to the roof
 +
* we don't care about the black pipes by the ceiling (the vertical parts
 +
we can mask or not, whatever)
 +

Materials & equipment
 +
* vaccuum

* broom & dustpan
 +
* masking tape (need)
 +
* dropcloths (need)
 +
* brushes?
 +
* rollers (need; I have several)
 +
* roller pans (need; I have several)

* spackle (need)
 +
* bondo (need)

* primer for windows (use what was recommended by Whosis?)

* paint (eggshell or semigloss, white)
 +
* ladder(s)
 +
 
 +
 
 +
I think we should get the base paint done before deciding about

blackboard paint or magnetic paint, as those can be done in entirely

separate processes and there will be a fair amount of time before the
 +
space is full of Crap again anyway.  I don't think either of those needs
 +
to be done before the main paint job.

Revision as of 19:32, 26 August 2009

This is a page for capturing ideas associated with the preparation and painting of 2169 Mission #300.

Contents

General Guidelines

  • We want a pragmatic and quickly-feasible approach taken to painting
  • Our goal is to make the space usable, not finish every little nook and cranny with perfect coverage

Prep Work

All preparation work should follow these general guidelines:

  • Clean the surface to be painted sufficiently well enough for their to be good adhesion of a new surface covering layer.
  • Remove obstructions, or at least minimize their intrusion
    • nails power-hammer driven into cement can't be yanked... but can be snipped off or ground nearly flush with the wall.
  • Mask what we are not painting
    • Mask to the first seam of whatever we cannot fully envelope with plastic and tape
  • Scrape excess paint and debris from the walls
  • Sand the surface until there are smooth edges to any scraped bits.
    • Focus on adhesion for determining when to stop. The wall facing the stairs and sliding glass door fire escape is a great example of great adhesion that has been painted over multiple times.
  • Prime surfaces that will not receive self-priming paint well.
    • Galvanized metals and anything going onto a gloss-finished area are prime (pun intended) examples of what needs to be primed.


Painting

  • Budget: TBD
  • Going to do with volunteer muralists
  • We will not hold off on moving
  • Basecoat Only, Something Close to White
  • Needs a person to handle paint - co-headed by Steve C and Rachel McC

Focused Areas

1. check with electrical team on some of the rusty square conduit and outlets; should they come off or not?

  • front wall attached to the janky breaker box
  • south wall front
  • south wall rear
  • hole in north wall with closed box over it


2. document the prep needs, with yr pix, so ppl can just go do a small amount of work when they have a chance. This should include scraping, as long as we note that cleanup is part of that task. Of particular importance are the rat-sized holes (there were 3 IIRC).

  • pull nails/screws/staples
  • scrape peeling paint (and clean up)
  • remove conduit as OK'd by electrical team
  • sand down rust on conduit that will remain
  • remove molding with employee info, near front door
  • remove curtain rod and conduit used as clothing rack
  • pull off phone cords and jacks (but not alarm cords)
  • patch holes w/Bondo (big holes) or spackle (small holes). may need a

bit of sheetrock patch for VERY big holes

  • remove mini desk
  • remove shelf with shrine, or not
  • vaccuum & wipe windowsills, scrape as needed


3. once walls are up, go around and verify that all prep is complete


4. mask floors, windows, etc

  • see notes on rear nasty stairwell
  • mask to first joint on electrical items


5. prime, using sprayer in most areas but rollers in some:

  • dj booth (to not crap on camera laptop)
  • small office (not painting the inside, don't spray over the top)
  • we don't care about the ladder to the roof
  • we don't care about the black pipes by the ceiling (the vertical parts

we can mask or not, whatever)


6. next day, paint, using sprayer similar to how primer was done


Materials & equipment

  • vaccuum
  • rags (need)
  • dish scrubbers (for rust)
  • scrapers
  • broom & dustpan
  • masking tape (need)
  • dropcloths (need)
  • brushes?

  • bondo (need)
  • primer for walls (use what was recommended by Whosis?)
  • primer for windows (use what was recommended by Whosis?)
  • paint (eggshell or semigloss, white)
  • ladder(s)


I think we should get the base paint done before deciding about blackboard paint or magnetic paint, as those can be done in entirely separate processes and there will be a fair amount of time before the space is full of Crap again anyway. I don't think either of those needs to be done before the main paint job.
