Next steps to the new gym (chaos ensues!)

We are VERY close to moving the gym.  The construction project (as always with these sorts of things) has run on a lot longer than we'd like, but is finally nearing the end!

We are hoping to be in sometime after Songkran, so I wanted to let everyone know what the next couple of weeks are going to be like.

The side of the gym looking towards the street -- this will be open with expanded metal screens to allow for lots of airflow.

We are going to re-use the roof in the new place -- so that is making the transition over very complicated, but lets us both save a lot of money as well as keep the high roof and all the natural light that makes the gym such a great place to work out in.

One side will have a wall! At last. :-)

The construction phase is about done, and moving over the roof and the new gym is going to take a few days, so we want everyone to know what the process is going to look like!

  1. Pull electrical / lights from the current roof (done yesterday)
  2. Take down the roof and metal framework (this will take a few days)
  3. Move the roof over to the new site and weld it into place / install the canopy
  4. Final pour for the polished cement floor
  5. Wiring for the gym and bathhouse (more showers and toilets!)
  6. Move everything over
  7. Open the new site!!!
New bathhouse right next to the gym -- 3 showers and 3 toilets and easy to get to (you can see the "barn door" to the back of the new gym).

The biggest hassle is moving the roof -- since we won't have one in the old gym once it comes down, and we won't be ready to be in the new one just yet.

The contractors are really good at what they do, but there are a lot of steps -- so it is going to take a few days, maybe a couple of weeks.  We'll put up shade cloth in the old gym and adapt our workouts! We might need to drop back on hours for a few days -- we'll let you know in advance, but pay attention to our FB page and here for any changes in hours!

And we've got a great "move all the equipment" WOD coming up soon...
