Hack the Space Day is coming up on Saturday 25th February. One of the tasks on the list is to upgrade the current Snackspace area. If anyone has DIY kitchen fitting experience this would be a great job to take on for the day, please let us know if you’re willing to help.
Currently Snackspace has drink making facilities, a mini oven and a microwave. There is a dishwasher and sink around the corner, but this is referred to as ‘the messy sink’ by some, and is used for rinsing paint pots etc.
To avoid crossing things we use to eat with solvents etc. we should really install a sink in the snackspace area.
There are also a lot of extension leads hanging around where liquids can be spilt on them.
Upgrade the existing worktop to a wipeable kitchen style surface.
Install a shelf below the counter, move microwave, dishwasher and oven to shelf.
Install sink in top of counter and plumb into water pipe running above room. Install drainage to draining point behind wall.
Bonus goal - Install shelf above counter for cutlery, crockery and mugs.
Plenty of this stuff can be found for free or cheap, if we can get a list of what needs buying, a purchase proposal can be made in advance of the HTS day.
- Sink able to be built into countertop - plenty on facebook marketplace for <£10
- Kitchen Worktop - 2x 2m lengths. tend to be plenty floating around for free/cheap
- Some shelf material - either wipeable kitchen worktop or plywood, depending on what we can find.
- Water pipe and fittings?
- Silicon filler for sealing sink
Anyone willing to take this on? We had about 30 members turn up for the day last time, so there’ll be no shortage of helping hands, we just need someone with some kitchen knowledge to lead on this - figure out what pipes we need to buy etc.
If you don’t fancy this one, theres plenty more tasks looking for volunteers over on the main thread:
