Duckweed Lab “Before” Picture

Don't worry about the white smock just yet... Have some remodeling to do first.

Don’t worry about the white smock just yet… Have some remodeling to do first.

For those of you who have followed the story of my duckweed farm and now processing plant, you’ll know how happy I am to have secured a warehouse with lots of space to grow the company. Tucked in one corner is a stand-alone office, one of those preassembled buildings within a building. It measures 10 by 20 ft. Perfect for a laboratory. First step was a total clean up from the roof to the floor. Then I ripped out all the old floor tiles as many were missing or loose. Then did spot drywall repair. Yesterday and today I spent painting the interior with the help of my daughters. We went with white satin walls and a light grey painted floor. One more coat tomorrow and I’ll take an “after” picture. Love the new no VOC paints these days.

Gotta start thinking about building counters and a few storage shelves. Nothing too fancy. Plywood will have to do for now for counter tops unless I run across a freebie somewhere. Recyclemania!!!

Am happy to accept recycled labware and lab equipment if anyone has any sitting in storage somewhere. Anything would be greatly appreciated.
