Karma Co-op Building Committee Report

If you haven’t been in the Karma office this year you might not have noticed the changes that have taken place. Have a look the next time you are in the store!

After Talia and the staff did a great job rearranging the desks and shelving, a group of members had a few work sessions to cut down some desks and paint some shelves and walls. The old electric baseboard in the office, which was no longer functioning, was replaced with a smaller unit by an electrician.

If you are shopping at night, you probably noticed the new LED motion-detector light beside the entrance and the new string of LED lights mounted on the fence.

In the washroom, the doorknob was replaced with a lever handle. The taps and cracked sink were replaced, the surface-mounted hot water supply was hidden in the wall, and the drywall was repaired.

Karma members also built a new roof on the outside shed, trimmed branches that were overhanging the roof of the store, and installed additional weather stripping on the front door.

The annual oiling of the reclaimed-wood exterior doors with Penofin Verde was also done back in the fall.

Thank you to all the members who participated in these projects to help keep Karma beautiful!

If you have any ideas for projects that need to be done around Karma please contact the Building Committee. Everyone is welcome to help out with and/or coordinate any of the projects — please contact building@karmacoop.org.
