  • Monetary issues

    • storage fee/woodworking fee?
      • to distinguish the general monthly fee from the “other side works”
      • idea is to figure out why we have projects on the other side and how much we
        are willing to pay for the woodworking possibility / storage
      • a woodworking/storage fee of 10€/m2/month of larger or longer projects?
      • figure out how much we like the “other side”. How much we are willing to pay of the woodworking or the storage on the other side
      • like two different montly payment options, one to use mainly the woodworking
        side and other to use mainly the other tools.
      • Of course it is not that strict and absolute but it affects the plans on future. e.g. should we
        have the woodworking in the future also or should we just “drop it”.this is difficult to explain but the reasons for this are in next bullet
  • Future plans

    • landlord is willing to step down partially on the usage of his workshop (the
      wood side) and thus we should then “take over” or by other means make
      sure the workshop in total is feasible in economic calculations.“vaasan verstas” - puutyöt
    • We need more members to be able to pay more
