FCW recently acquired some additional space adjacent to the “cave”. The space consists of two rooms. One is 20×24 ft and the other 20×20 ft giving a total of 880 sq ft of additional space. Both rooms are on an outside wall, giving an additional 6 windows for external access. As seems to be our lot in life, one of the rooms has no power at all and the other has a single circuit that is at least 50 years old. Also, there is no control over the lights, so one of the first tasks will be to wire the area.
There have been several suggestions as to what to put in the new area including: an extension to the woodshop; the science lab, glass shop and ovens; a prop/costume shop, a small office; and others. It will be used for supply and project storage until the wiring and remodeling occur.
With this space, FCW has averaged an expansion every 13 months, with the initial space Sept. 2011, storage area Nov. 2012, Lab Nov 2013, and new space Dec. 2014. Now it just needs a name.
