  • B. Nectar was a smashing success! Over 60 people attended; a ton of people were here for tours and we ate all the pizza and had all the mead in the world.
  • “the regular calendar stuff” went on with no issues
  • expansion update:

Sewing had all 55 electrical outlets completed on Saturday! David Henry painted 1/2 of the room! Other 1/2 has paint already here. Once that’s done we are on to installing drop ceiling. We also have slat boards to count and paint. Construction teams goal is to be installing floor when Elab is finishing.

  • Three sides of E labs walls are up. One more drop off from lumber company for ceiling joists, 5 extra studs and drywall. Akeim and Nick killed it!
  • Nate is going to start navigating the electrical in there soon. Construction should be complete and move in will be starting in the next ~ month.

If you want to help wash the back wall; we could use help with that task!

  • Lounge was updated by Emerson! It’s clean and has more order! And the furniture fits better. Huge improvement!
  • Paul A and Micky got craft painted. A few touch ups are left!

- Nate got all of the electrical conduit stuff needed for installing electrical. Just have to piece together now.

  • Hans, Janelle and Creig updated classroom and it’s beautiful and way more enjoyable to be in now. Paints still got baby touch ups but it’s pretty close to use.
  • Kitchen zone layout is expected to have a re-imagined layout now that commons is bursting at the seems. There is a potential ZC for this but I don’t have further updates on this.
  • Nick is out of town for the next week.

    Put Member-X on probation for one week. I'm sorry to go to this step before more lengthy discussion, but it's an emerging situation and we have gotten each other's perspectives extensively.

"In order to preserve a social space where members and guests want to go, and to allow members to work without finding someone sleeping in the middle of the day in places where they are trying to work, Member-X is to take a cooling-off period of one week away from i3Detroit, beginning the day after this vote completes in favor, and ending one week later."
