Green in Front of the Geek House
Our grass has been planted and it’s beautiful. We also got some great looking native plants that will do well with less water, and some water-efficient sprinklers as well!
We’ve Been Busy!
We’ve moved our equipment over, the flooring has been completed and now the painting is underway. We don’t have our certificate of occupancy yet, so we can’t work out of the building yet, but we’re getting close!
Improvements in Lighting
We’ve put new energy-efficient lights in that will bring the previous 18,000 watts usage down to a much better 5000 watts – that’s if every light in the place is on, and that’s providing MORE light than the old system!
The Patron Wall
Here’s another thing we haven’t gone into detail about previously: In our lobby (“The Lounge”) we’re going to have a big white wall and on it we’ll be continuously projecting names and pictures of all of you who help us make our shows by being Patrons!
The Kitchen Takes Shape
The kitchen is coming together with a sink, dishwasher, and cabinets, and Cali brandished a heat gun in the course of cleaning out the refrigerator – that’s geek problem solving! We’ve had water damage restoration Minneapolis over to take a look if our house is secured enough to prevent water damage.
Our Finished Floors
Chilling in the Server Room
The server room is getting a nice black paint job, and the AC is keeping this room well-chilled. We’ll be getting the high-speed Time Warner data connection in here soon and we’ll be ready to rock!
The Control Room
With a great view into the area where we’ll be shooting our shows is Nelsonville 3.0, where our NewTek Tricaster will live, tended to by Dave Curlee and Kien Tran.
In the back of the building is the warehouse which we’ll be converting into our shooting spaces. The sets for Geek Beat Live and the daily shows will be here! Right now it’s full of all the gear we brought over from the old building. We’re scheduled to get the warehouse checked by consultants for warehousing health and safety in the UK.
