Relocate some of the maker type areas to the areas by the kitchen

What Will Be Done[edit]

Please see the drawings for further clarification.

File:Noisebridge - Sheet - A502 - Maker Mover.pdf

Move the CAD/CAM tools and work area to where the hacker cafe is. Distribute the Hacker Cafe fuctions elsewhere in the space. Move the Library to the current CAD/CAM area. Move the Sewing area to the current library. Add shelves at the locations of the columns in between the spaces to increase storage. Demolish the "L" shaped counter in the kitchen to open it up and create a better working / eating space within it.

What Areas in the Space Will This Affect[edit]

CAD/CAM, Library, Sewing, Cafe

Who Will Be Doing It[edit]

Jarrod Hicks, additional volunteers may be recruited during the proposal process.

Why This Will Be Good[edit]

This will move some of the louder activities to the louder side of the building. The Sewing and CAD/CAM areas will get better defined areas. The 3D printers will be further from the windows. The library will make good use of an odd space and will benefit from increased daylight and quiet. The kitchen will have less dead space.

The rational for this project is further described in the diagrams below

Why This Will Be Bad[edit]

The Hacker cafe gets broken up.

How Long Will It Take[edit]

Closing would not be necessary. Building all the shelving will be the longest part. Once the shelving is up the moving would probably be done in a day.

In A Fantastic World, What Extra Budget Would You Like[edit]

Funds for plywood and fasteners for the shelves. Sandpaper and Polyurathane. Funds for lumber and plywood to build more desks, if needed.

Are There Any Other PFAs This Would Work Well With[edit]

The general ReMakeBaseBootClean project

Are There Any Other PFAs This Would Contradict[edit]

None that I am aware of.
