This is a page for capturing ideas associated with the preparation and painting of 2169 Mission #300.
- 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
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.
Build Meeting 2009-08-14
Lights - Shannon
- Bringing lights in rear up to level of lights in front, or somewhat higher to put in walls
- Could possible raise them higher, working with Neil Sunday
- 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
Spaces at 83c
83c has subspaces consisting of:
- The Main / Meeting Room
Spaces Planned for the Sweatshop
Concept: Usage Zones
Academic / Classroom
consisting of conference / classrooms, areas suitable for learning, planning, and colaboration. Room ideas are:
- Dungeons and Dragons room: a rectangular room with a board-room style table in it, walls covered in bookshelves and whiteboards.
- 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.
- Study Rooms: Small rooms just big enough for four people to crowd into or one person to spread out in.
- The chill space / lounge conceptually could belong to this Zone.
- Library -- bookshelves, chairs/cushions/lighting for individual reading, some tables for quiet study
- Possible to have a graphics/drafting area? Light table and drafting tables w/maylines, ETC.
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.
- positive airflow ventilation to outside
- pressurized hoses to operate tools, blow / suck debris
- possible water & drainage hookup
- strong power lines
- security / fencing-off for party times
- sound barrier to other zones
