I believe they have until the end of the year to vacate. Escape was planning a production increase once they take over the space, at least the last time I spoke to Reace.

Yowsers!!
We'll have to have "It's Monday" through "It's Friday" photo threads, and I'll have to be on the forum 24/7 so as to not miss anything.

Having said that, a production increase depends on more than space. They're working pretty hard over there as it is.

I believe that in one of the podcast videos from the past, Tammy talks about restricting their output per year for quality and span-of-control.

It would be interesting to hear a new interview where Reace and Tammy can elucidate on their current business plans.

Congratulations you guys! Yours is being built before ours, but we pick up 2 days before you! We look forward to comparing notes! We also got a phone call last night to confirm our address. Then got an email with the import paperwork! Getting closer everyday!

Thanks Charlie and Lucy. When we went to Chilliwack last Sept. with a tour through the plant, it was quite evident to me that ETI was getting pinched for room. Also in some pictures, it looks like they have trailers in some kind of a hoop building. I don't recall seeing this last fall. It will be interesting to see the future of ETI. Loren

Nice! Love to see build photos at this early stage. I noticed that they mounted the solar panel even before they cut the window holes in the shell.

Thanks Robert! We noticed that too! Funny what you notice when it's yours (in our case), and actually know something about the trailers (in your case)!
