We received our permits to proceed on the electrical and plumbing installation. On Saturday at 10am we’re going to meet at the Steinfeld Warehouse (101 West 6th Street) and get to work.
Everyone who wishes to help out or donate some building supplies is free to come down.
Things are really getting busy at Xerocraft. We got our 501(c)3 authorization and our building permits. Now it’s time to get down to business. It’s time to get our electrical and plumbing up to snuff. And that is going to cost a buck or two…
With that in mind, we want to call on everyone who has not paid dues or donated money this month to please do so now. We need your support. Thank you.
Another weekend of work at the new location. We moved in some furniture, tossed a bunch of garbage and Leon installed our new mailbox.
More great news! The IRS accepted our paperwork. Xerocraft Makerspace of Tucson a fully accredited tax-exempt nonprofit. We received our letter of determination on Saturday, May 11. This means that material and monetary donations you make to us will be tax write-offs. This also opens us up to receiving educational and STEM grants!
We made some great progress at our Saturday renovation party. We installed railing on the second floor lofts, removed the old electrical box and pulled weeds and garbage from the front yard.
I got some more work done at the Steinfeld Warehouse today. I fixed the weedwhacker (again) and mowed down most of the grass that’s growing between the cracks in the pavement out front.
I also pulled some grass by hand around the ivy and hung some vines against the brick wall next to the entrance.
But wait, there’s more!
Clean up at our new location continued today. I stopped by for about an hour and pulled weeds and swept out front. We have a weedwhacker but it is down for repair until I get the crack in the gas tank sealed. In the meantime I did what I could by hand.
