This school has a storage problem that continuously gets them into trouble with the fire marshal. We have been asked to help create a solution. We are going to divide into four teams, three working on storage solutions.
- We will be building a prefab, resin storage shed behind the building to help with furniture and large box storage.
- We will have a team installing a single shelf over the coat hooks in each of the classroom coat closets.
- Another team will be installing hanging cabinets in the hallway, these will be closed storage.
- Finally, we will be completing a mural that we started during our last project.
