Here’s a walk-through video of our fantastically cool and first-ever physical space for kwartzlab.
Click through for stills from the day.
What a good day! First day in kwartzlab’s physical space as tenants. Ben, Bevan, Gus, Andrew, Ed, James, John, Alex, and I came out to clean up the space today.
Lots of leftovers from the previous tenant. There was a reason they left the fridge and stove behind: they don’t work.
Ben found a stash of herbal remedies including witch hazel. Ben! It’s not a beer, don’t drink it!
Andrew gets all the credit for scrubbing the hell out of the kitchen sink. Better than new.
Double credit for Bevan (and Ben) who rolled in at 10am, 2 hours before all of us. Go boys!
This is how Alex relaxes after final exams He’s on window detail with me and Gus.
‘Cause, yeah, the windows were covered in some odd combination of that spray-on fake snow, black, and yellow paint. Crikey! Nothing that can’t be remedied with 3 hours and 3 scrapers. Now that the windows are clean, I need an extension ladder to get cleaning these babies from the outside. Also need to repair the caulking externally so we don’t lose any of these precious panes.
This is not a good look for the entrance, so Ed and Ben are on the job.
Gus! Don’t jump! It’s not as bad as it looks.
We can just put this out to the street for garbage day, right?
I totally conquered this bathroom today. Why, the Virgin Mary herself would be proud to…
Thanks to James and John for doing the supply run to get cleaning products… and beer! Of course they contributed elbow grease too.
Old guys stand over there, please.
This usually marks the end of any further meaningful work of the day, but we got another 3 hours in after beer break. That’s how we roll.
Look at them beautiful windows now! ROCK!
Thanks a lot, guys, for giving up your Sunday to contribute to the space. Much appreciated.
Keep moving forward!
