@TODO (Rustin Atkeisson, no date): Create a thread on discourse for the Boy Scout explorer post.

  • Dean Day proposing expanding jewelry area.
    • May take an hour to knock down the wall after possibly a half day of moving all equipment in jewelry lab
    • Would easily increase space of jewelry lab by 50% or more depending on final configuration
    • Cost of renovation should be around $100 in materials, does not impact a load bearing wall or tearing out cinder blocks

    • Would wait until the 1st of the year when Dean officially takes lead over jewelry
