Storage Facility

Simply Self Storage
28650 Grand River
Farmington Hills

The location is on Grand River Ave, just north of Eight Mile Road, right next to the Public Storage we used to use.

Property Manager: Lisa Dueweke

It's a drive-in storage building with only one floor.


If renting a <a href=“”>POD</a> (Portable On-Demand) ever becomes cost-effective, it would be a fantastic solution that would almost completely eliminate the need for an InventoryWrangler. This is a portable crate the size of a walk-in freezer, built like a railroad boxcar. It would be loaded at the hotel at the end of the convention, driven away by the service, and returned straight to the hotel the next year. During the year it is stacked for storage with other crates, and there is a fee to forklift it down for access.



The following lists only the supplies to be taken to the Penguicamp Code Sprint on March 1-2 2014. We'll definitely not take all of it. We did not inventory the entire cube this time. For instance, there was an entire cart full of LN2 ice cream equipment and supplies which we did not inventory. Also, Penguicon owns supplies in a box for parties, which is not stored in the cube.
