Revised building size from 40' x 80' to 40'x 70' to allow more room to move at site.
Site Prep complete and getting close to ground breaking on footings.
Many volunteers and volunteer hours to get to this point thanks to everyone so far.
3. Whats Next
We are very close to digging footings.
Acquire a building permit
Still asking for any help with project be it through donations or in kind labour. Our hope is to have someone that would be willing to coordinate the build of the shop starting with footings. If you can help with this please email firstname.lastname@example.org thank-you.
Thanks to all that have stepped up to date with funding and in kind labour donations as without your help we would not even be able to consider a project of this size.
