We're Moving
« on: February 23, 2018, 04:19:21 PM »
Just before Christmas our landlord asked if we would be interested in moving to our own building.  After a lot of thought and negotiations we signed a lease.  Really the hardest part was getting the lawyers to agree on the verbiage in the lease.   We signed it yesterday and began the demo work necessary to set up our shop.  The new building is just across the street.  

Front

side and back of building

Still need landlord to move his vehicles out of the space.


 

 

We hope to be close to all moved in by our open house on April 21.

Nice space.  Is it bigger (how much) than your current?  Are you planning on adding new lines or processes?  Moving more work in-house?

Remember I said we were not planning on moving.  The landlord lost their tenant and it would be easier to get someone like us who needs an open floor to rent the whole building then trying to subdivide so they smooth talked us until Kevin gave in.

It is true, we brought several processes in house last year.  The new equipment makes it tight on the floor.  Since the move made sense we decided to go for it.  Sometimes you just have to take advantage of opportunities when they come along.

As for all the vehicles in the shop they belong to the landlord although I would love to help him out with the R8 against the wall. ;D

It will give us about 25% more room. And a lot more parking area which will be great for the Open House.

Red - it looks like Kevin will have 2 offices in the new building: one for admin work and one for mfg

The first piece of new equipment was delivered to the new building yesterday and I got to take the first whack at the wall coming down.

Looks like you answered the door when opportunity came a knocking.
Congratulations on the move! 
Also, a Logrite "quick delivery option" might involve that Audi.  😎  😆

So the old room is down and will be rebuilt after the electrical work is done.  

The building also has a mezzanine set up for storage.  We started filling that space with non-production items.
The people who were in the building before us made trade show displays so there is interesting creative things all over the office area.  Here is a doorway that will be ripped out.

Pete
That is an air filtration system.  We need to clean the air from the plasma cutter.  For the new building we our switching from a water table to a down draft table.  Which is supposed to be delivered today!

Yesterday we started to clear the lumber yard but due to the amount of rain today that project is on hold.  So today we started some electrical work.
