Barn (Workshop) Raising
17 . 06 . 17
Wherever you are and whatever you do, a little more space would inevitably come in handy. Since moving into our workshop at the Eco Park three years ago, most of the “office” work involved with running Otter Surfboards has been done on James’ kitchen table. For a long time we’ve toyed with the idea of building a mezzanine into the workshop so that we can have an upstairs space for various elements of what we do here, and over the past three weeks those dreams and plans have finally come to fruition. Much like a traditional barn-raising where friends and neighbours would lend a hand in the building of a barn’s framework (before the advent of mobile cranes), we were lucky enough to have friends on hand to help us out and it wouldn’t have been possible without them.
