Tomorrow (Tuesday) come out to 152 Niagara (old|haus) to help clean stuff up. The general order of business will be to sort things, chuck things, and pack things.
Lockers need to be empty by Friday – so Tuesday is a good time to get that done. Please leave your locker unlocked so that it’s easy to see that it’s empty. Anything left in the lockers when we move them will be left behind! The lockers are heavy enough to move when they’re empty, so please take your stuff out.
After August 23rd, anything left in old|haus is fair game. It could be chucked, claimed by someone, or sold to the gypsies. It would be nice to have as little of this stuff as possible, because getting rid of crap is a big, stupid, thankless job. Please take your stuff home, chuck it yourself, or sell it to the gypsies yourself. If you think someone else might like it, label it “FREE”. Perhaps we can even designate a part of the workshop for this? If it’s not gone by the 22nd, please dispose of it yourself.
In other news, new|haus at 25 Dundurn N is starting to take shape. All the walls that are coming out have been removed, thanks to the hard work of Peter, Trevyn, Paul Hart, James Arlen, James Q and the kind folks at the staircase. Adam ran some phone cable, so we’ll be ready for whenever Bell decides to give us service. Collar ties are up, along with some spanking new parallam beams to make sure the roof doesn’t fall in on us. The next step in this process is the installation of some structural walls on the east and west sides of the building. Here are some photos from the weekend: http://picasaweb.google.com/thinkhausorg/NewHausConstruction#
If you’re free, and want to help, message Trevyn or me on haus|talk, or send me an email (adina at this domain) and we’ll let you know what’s up. We’ll also send emails to the discuss list, and maybe update the website when there are more organized haus|building events. Hugh runs a tight shop, and we shouldn’t have any problems with people showing up and not knowing what to do. If you bring a hammer, safety glasses, and suitable footwear, he should be able to put you to work.
See you tomorrow!
