Are you sure you can’t make space available for your project by reorganizing and cleaning up the existing stuff in the space?
Like, back in the day the Vancouver Hackspace Amateur Radio Club didn’t have any space and they wanted room for their stuff. People complained about us running out of space and I thought that was just dumb because I went into the space, cleaned some stuff up and made a full nokia bench for them available. Everyone was happy.
And like the time we were running out of laser cutter material storage and people wanted implement processes and policys to police the storage of materials. I said fuck that, cleaned the space, reorganized and just built a better storage rack to reclaim some unused space. Everyone was happy.
Hell, I built the laser material storage thing at the new space and it’s been pretty good at allowing everyone to keep their materials in a compact place.
I’m just saying their is probably a way for both projects to coexist in the space. Do-ocracy ting.
