PaxSpace has been given the opportunity to move to bigger and better space across the street in Bay 8. The space will cost about $200 more a month due to the increased floor space, but Bay 8 includes a already built 624 ft^2 mezzanine space that is included in the price. The mezzanine also provides a pre-built roof for our classroom space. We should be moving into the space in Mid-March. Here is a list of the improvements for Bay 8.

  • More SPACE.
    • 250 ft^2 more on the base floor
    • 620 ft^2 in the mezzanine.
    • 900 ft^2 more than our current space of 1750 ft^2.
  • Enclosed space for electronics/3D printers and offices
  • Larger classroom with a ceiling and sound proofing from the shop area.
  • Front and Rear access to the space.
  • Class room will be nice enough to rent out for additional revenue.
  • Water spicket near the garage door.
  • Already plumbed for compressed air.


  • Need to build stairs to access the mezzanine.
    • Current access is from another bay in through a doorway in the wall.
  • Need to build the wall for the classroom and beautify the ceiling in some way
    • The ceiling is engineered joists on 12" centers
  • We need to organize the new space so that it stays neater than the current space.
  • Increase our access system to 2 possibly 3 doors.
