Metalshop LeanTo

  • Information only at this point
  • Metalshop now has a piece of equipment that really should not be indoors with the rest of the metalworking equipment
  • We are looking into pouring a 10ft wide pad the length of the hot shop, potentially a mono slab pour and 6in thick concrete
  • Might take about 6 cubic yards of concrete (potentially $1,000 for that much concrete if we do the work ourselves, but that is beyond Joe and Wes’s comfort on doing on our own, might be close to $2k to have a company pour it).
  • Concrete companies charge a minimum of 10yrs to deliver
  • Might consider a shipping container if code allows
    • This equipment will require a cover over the new equipment, which might impact recovering the roof and will need to coordinate with Buckley to see how this would impact the recover and what their preference would be. (no idea how much a decent structure and roof would run, but could double the price)
    • Will need to look at permits, but would like to include sound deadening walls to prevent complaints from neighbors
    • Not sure on cost at this point, but this would definitely be a secondary project to getting the roof done, as well as re-paving the parking lot
  • Rustin encourages members to attend to discuss this further at the next metalshop meetup on 7/6 4:30pm
