We have a new space, colocated with the Staircase Theatre on Dundurn Street. It’s a super sweet second floor, with tons of natural light (daystar!). The best thing about the new space is that it’s approximately the most accessible location in the city – Dundurn and King. We’ve got a floor plan worked out, with a chem / cnc room, workshop space, and loungey space.
Buildout week starts today! At the open|haus tonight, we’ll be moving the 175 2x4s we ripped out of the old space over to the new one. We’ll talk about how things will work during buildout week and how you can lend a hand. We’ll keep this page updated for folks who can’t make it out tonight.
It’s an exciting time to be a member.
Infrastructure is coming along nicely. We’ve got ice cold Pop Shoppe drinks, and plenty of fun stories to tell.
In this post, you can check out a Macintosh SE/30 that resides on a chair in the lounge, and the whole group meeting and talking.
Also seen is founding member Jason attempting to install a mailbox, while bending drill bits at the same time.
Come see us every Tuesday at 7pm!
We’re usually around until 9:30, and we’ll be glad to show you around.
First official open|haus meeting happened tonight. A lot of notes were made, plans were planned, ideas shared.
Mitch purchased, installed and cleaned a refrigerator for the use of think|haus, as well as set of coffee cups (in “electric duck yellow”).
We are going to be planning a Makerfair in the next bit, as well as explore possible streams of revenue.
It was good to see some new faces. Hopefully more will come when the word gets out.
Lots of updates on the site the last 24 hours or so:
- contact page
- links updated
- events calendar added
- integration with twitter
and of course, we want to promote open|haus Tuesdays as much as possible.
Lastly, I was uploading some photos and came across one from the first visit I thought appropriate to share. Behold!
