For our new space to be workable we need to build Like the little doozers that we are, Have a look through the pages below Pick an area and get involved, we need hands and gumption.

A good thing to di is think what you would like to space to provide for you and try and guide the build to provide those things, we need ideas, you can also see what others are doing and help them build the parts of the space they require.

The Areas of work are seperated below, into Location and type of work, Have a look though the type of work you are interested in and if we arrange with the peopl ein charge using the maillist to roganise any work to be done,

Physical Power Lighting Network Access Control
Main Room Workshop Room Upstairs Room Stair Space
Tools Furniture

I would also like to include a snagging list on the pad, for people to quickly add problems in the new space which should be resolved, keep these short, it is generally for things which do not fit into any of the above sention.
