The Clay Space
Ill get the rolling pin and start generating a repeating pattern for your feedback. Im pretty stoked about this, too! Thank you!
Kiln Room install: Monday June 12 - Thursday June 22
I am coordinating the Kiln Room and Classroom renos at Makerspace and wanted to fill you in on the basic plan:
Install window: Monday, June 12 to Friday June 22
Mission preview: THIS Monday, June 12th, 5:30 - 7:00pm (purpose being for everyone to get the details and funding they need to do their parts, like tear-out, electrical, plumbing, drywalling, cabinet making, etc)
Demo and Preliminary work: Tuesday, June 13 and Weds June 14 - 4 volunteers needed each day (although I hope to ‘save’ the qualified help like carps and electrical for skilled jobs and utilize basic volunteers for this grunt work).
Thursday June 15 and Friday June 16 - plumbing and electrical back-work and drywall, Classroom drywall cleanup and ceiling painting.
Saturday and Sunday - work list to be determined based on Monday Preview planning.
Monday and Tuesday - work list to be determined based on Monday Preview planning. Install and wire Kiln?
Wednesday June 21 - Fire kiln?
Thursday June 22 - touch ups and details, as required.
The finishing and details will be done as time allows - the goal is to get the place wired, plumbed, cabinetted and fire the kiln on Weds June 21 Hack Night!
I have the following people lined up, each with different skill sets and availability:
@vaughn - I have 30 hours over the 10 days to contribute
@Grant-Fraser - electrical lead, with help from volunteers
Cory Doyle and his wingmen - cabinets and various capabilities
@Nicholas - plumbing support
Nathan Leduc - carpentry
@Bradley-Maker - carp and cranial support
Cole - stoked person
Amanda Eccleston - a bit of everything
Cheetie Malouin - same
Greg Stanley - drywall lead
More help is soooo welcome - please let us know if you can do a shift or two?
I am hoping each person on this list can find one other volunteer to bring along when they ‘do their shift’ - there will be plenty of labour to go around and I would like to employ the ‘many hands making light work’ method and tap into our networks.
Hope to see you all Monday 5:30 to 7:00pm to preview the job, plan your purchasing and schedules.
Thank you! I look forward to making deadly clay sculpture and firing in at Kamloops Makerspace Clay Space!

Nicholas is doing the plumbing right now
Bradley is doing trim in Classroom
AWESOME WORK PEOPLE. Amazing.
I am picking up the OSB for the floor, as well.
@Krankin I’ve got a follow up question. At what CFM for an exhust fan do we need make-up air? We don’t need it for a bathroom fan or for an ordinary kitchen range hood.
@Grant-Fraser i’d need to look through my HVAC design notes, but i’m pretty sure i can figure it out for you tonight after I get home.
@Grant-Fraser hey there is an existing hole in the exterior wall for the old bathroom fan!
@Vaughn Which wall is it on? If it isn’t too far from the kiln we can make it work. I’ll have a look later
@Grant-Fraser it is on the exterior wall - should work with a long snozzle
@Grant-Fraser Just to be clear about the make up air, are you wondering if you need a intake fan to resupply the air taken from the room via the exhaust, You do not a intake fan, however you need a intake source or else risk a pressure differential making it hard to open/ close the door, the easiest way provide an air intake path would be to have a air gap under the door, 1-1/2" -2"should work.
