From 57North Hacklab

Revision as of 08:28, 14 September 2018 by Andyg (talk | contribs)


Come to the space and hack on things to make the space better for hacking the space

hack the space October 13 and 14, 2018.

We will be in the space til late Saturday and again early, fuelled by pancakes to continue on Sunday.


Do something with the upstairs room

Some of the walls also need to be patched, which we can do, before painting.

Make things light up


Better street-level hacklab signage

Ideas mentioned before...

  • A hanging sign above the door, pehaps only in place when the space is open.
  • An illuminated up sign on the window in the stairwell, perhaps the pane that is wood
  • An illuminated sign in one or more of the upstairs windows.
  • Spray paint the front door to say 57N, we'd have to leave the fire exit sign there.

Ventilation system for the inside room

If we want the ventilation parts costed about £170 for the which will have to be bought.

Make the shower room into a photo dark room // washing up room

I have a kitchen sink with worktop for the shower room if we want to make it more usable, I think Mike's darkroom idea is the way to go, K. The extractor fan in the toilet is broken, and need to be replaced, a replacement is there.

Paint the walls

There is a 10 litre pot of white emulsion in the upstairs room, there if needed. Some of the walls also need to be patched, which we can do, before painting. Not sure what we'd paint first.

Make a new museum

It's been discussed that we might put it on the left as you go down the wee flight of stairs to the main space. We could use the Ikea unit we had in the old space.

Art Stuff

Snug Space

We could work on the under-stair snug.
