On August 9th a fire blazed through m0xy Studios in East Oakland, CA.
m0xy Industrial Arts
m0xy, an industrial arts incubator, houses over 35 artist work spaces. Several of these studios lost everything in the fire, including O2 Treehouse.
REMAINS OF THE O2 TREEHOUSE STUDIO
We are beyond grateful that no one was injured in the fire! But we have been left devastated by the loss not only of our physical working space, but namely of the tool and hardware collection that Dustin had been building since he started the company in 2006. This collection included everything from stationary woodworking tools to expensive welding equipment to power tools, hand tools and specialty treehouse installation rigging equipment. To replace everything that was lost would be over 100k. Our business and livelihood, as well as the livelihood of our workers and many of our peers has been put in very real danger by the fire.
