The idea of any project should be simple, understandable and achievable. Here it is.
If you need a good workshop for your hobby, join us because we are building it.
At the moment the idea is the following. We buy sea shipping container, put it somewhere where it's convenient for us, install all necessary equipment and start using it on time sharing principles.
Imagine this. You are a hobbyist, jack-of-all-trades or a creative artistic person. You live in an apartment building or any other place where you don't have enough space for a workbench, BUT you are a member of the BBTB-team - this means you can get up from the sofa in your living room, walk a short distance (from 0 to 15 minutes walking distance) and get yourself into a high-quality workshop, where you can find all kind of tools and equipment you might need for your project. If you need some very special equipment (like welding-room, biochemical laboratory or a dog grooming area) it might take you for a longer distance to walk even to drive. But as a BBTB member, you will know about all BBTB specialized units in your city.
As mentioned earlier, the abbreviation BBTB stands for Big Brown ToolBox. The idea is to put a fully equipped workshop into a standard shipping container and put these containers (BBTB-units) as close as possible to your residency. Each BBTB-unit is a independent, self-government entity, at the same time, each unit is a part of a whole community. If you want to understand how does it fit into each other, please read more.
The main audience of the BBTB project is hobbyists, jack-of-all-trades, creative individuals who need a full-fledged workshop for their projects. Please read the rest of the article and identify to yourself is this project for you or not.
