Summer is fast approaching and we need to take a look at re-configuring the space layout to accommodate the new shop layout.
With the hope of improving the efficiency of our layout, you will notice that the storage area, electroncs lab, and lounge has been re-positioned into a new configuration which we believe adds more accessibility as well as efficiency to utilizing the area. With this new layout, we have added approximately 300 square feet to shop space.
