Green Room Refresh 2021

Hi All

I am still a fairly new member of the Space and getting to know you all, you may generally see me in the Forge or metalshop working on throwing spikes and shuriken (my other overlapping passion being martial arts, which I have been doing for over 10 years).

We are asking for some volunteers to help with a quick project to refresh the Green Room.

A list of goals generally:

  • Clean and tidy
  • No holes in walls/ceilings or weird stuff stuck to them
  • Walls painted and freshened up
  • Power to workspaces sorted

Stretch goals:

  • Remove all air conditioner units and replace with perspex
  • Door stop to quad door

We are looking to have the above done by the 25th October which is ambitious but I think we can get together and get this room into a more welcoming and ordered space!

If we could please have a show of hands for the following tasks:

  • Wall patching
  • Painting
  • General tidying an cleaning
  • Floor cleaning (floor polishing machine will be arranged to assist)

I am looking to arrange a couple of mini working bees (tentatively on the 17th Oct for painting and 23rd for floor scrubbing). As well as this Wednesday night (13th Oct) to do some general tidyup and wall stripping/hole filling.

I’ll help with the working bees, procuring things etc. You just tell me what you need @Zanshin

I have a drywall sander, and a bucket of gyprock (have to check its ok). I could bring those in mon/tues. Could also get a sheet of drywall for holes on way in from bunnies.

Hi Josh

That would be great!

Other things that come to mind:
Putty scrapers
I have three ladders I can bring from work
75mm door/floor trim approx 2 meters
40mm floor trim (approx 500mm)
Approx 1m Corner trim
Carpet trim/transition (for between the carpet and flooring, a few areas that are a bit of a trio hazard)

Hi Guys

I can help I during the day. Just let men know where and when.

Thanks for volunteering to make this happen.

If you could make a bunnings shopping list that would be good? just to make sure we are all on the same page? Either links in a forum post or use their online store to make one of those pdf shopping lists?

Hi All

Could’nt get Bunnings to share my basket so kindly see below: x3 x1 x 1 x2 x 2 x 1 x 1 x1 x 3 x 1 x1 for securing plasterboard patches x 1 x 1 x 1

Grand Total of $254.34 for the above

I did also see perspex sheets at approx $66 a go.
And assumed we could raid the woodshop scraps box for a few pieces to secure the plasterboard patching.

Awesome @Zac_Crow if you or any other mambers are at the space any week days a few tasks to get us started:

Take down all posters / things stuck on walls (except any safety warnings)

  • Random prints
  • Random shelves
  • Bits of wood over holes
  • Tape

I might be in on Friday… regardless when I am in next I’ll look at doing those jobs.
