Remodeling needs

We seek people who are experienced in remodeling to join in our efforts to make our Makerspace more livable and inviting to our members and visitors. As a 501c3 non-profit organization, Mobile Makerspace does not have a large income for these remodeling projects. If you or your organization can donate materials, time, and/or expertise to these remodeling projects, we can make a trade in kind for membership and/or provide recognition of your generosity by adding your name or your company's name to a permanently affixed plaque in the remodeled areas. Please contact us if you have an interest in helping in these remodeling areas:

Mobile Makerspace is a 501c3 non-profit organization. Many of your tool donations can be tax deductible. However, we also have tools that remain the property of the owner but are made available to the members of the Makerspace. If you have a tool that you are not using any more, let us know.
