Phone Booth/Conference Room

The iPads next to the door will list the current bookings for that day. If the display is green, the room is currently available, and a red display means it is reserved.

The phone booth is free to use for members and does not require a booking. Members may reserve the phone booth for a max of 30-minutes from your Member's Portal.

The conference room must be booked from the Member's Portal. Members are given 5 free hours of conference room time per month and a reduced rate of $20/hr beyond that. For non-members, the conference room is $40/hr.

Business Address & Mail Handling

Dedicated Desk and Private Office members have mail handling included in their membership. Anyone else can add this service for $20/month.

You can use any name or business name you want with the following address:
300 E Second St., Unit 2, Whitefish, MT 59937

Mail is distributed out either on the member's desk or locked in the bottom right locker.

Important note: The Post Office won't be able to forward mail onwards if/when a member cancels their membership. You will need to update each applicable sender accordingly.

-Be kind and show respect to members and visitors and their different working styles. Keep a pleasant and quiet phone voice. For private conversations, take advantage of the phone booth. Talking in a normal voice prevents conflicts and ensures that other workers can hear their clients on their phones. Use earbuds for listening to music, podcasts, etc.

-Use the phone booths for calls only The phone booths are shared by all members and day pass users so please try to limit your time to 30 minutes or less. Do not use the phone booths as a private working space if you don't need to be on a call or video conference.

-Clean up after yourself. Don’t leave trash and clutter. You’re welcome to spread out while you’re working, but please leave the space even better than you found it. We have a weekly cleaning service, but feel free to use any of the cleaners available under the kitchen sink.

-Due to allergies and sensitivities, please refrain from wearing perfume, cologne, or other strong scents.

-Dogs are allowed on an approval basis only. Please speak with Drew for more information.

-Coworking space is for working. It’s fine to show non-members around, but this isn’t the place for members to hang out with friends or non-members to poach some free Wi-Fi.

-Let us know when something needs fixing or improving by posting it in the Slack channel.

-One of the founding values of the coworking movement is sustainability. Please do your part by reducing and recycling:

• Reduce - Don't print material that could remain in digital form; turn off lights or appliances that aren't being used, even if you didn't turn them on.
• Recycle - There are recycling bins in the kitchen that are clearly labeled. Please rinse out any remaining food in the recyclables before putting it in the bin.

-Slack community: Members receive an invitation to Slack which is a group messaging app that we use to communicate amongst members. Important information such as updated wifi credentials will be posted in the ``Members`` channel. Other information will be posted in the ``General`` channel. This is the place to learn about events, advertise your services, make a plan for happy-hour, and post your wants, needs, and cool ideas. It is not the place to post political, religious, or other polarizing information.

-Make connections! One of the biggest benefits of shared working spaces is the networking opportunities. Reach out to other coworkers and get to know them and what they do. Basecamp is comprised of all sorts of businesses and professionals; data scientists, software developers, travel agents, marketers, content writers, etc. Though not all of us do business exclusively in the valley, you never know what types of relationships and ideas can form and what paths may cross at basecamp.

-Free tea and pour-over coffee are provided for all members and day pass users. Tips for the best brew are outlined on the counter next to the Chemex, and below for a single cup.

-Espresso machine: One touch operation, pretty easy! Be sure to put your mug under the spout before selecting your drink.

-Rinse off your dishes and put them in the dishwasher. Dishes should not be left in the sink unless the dishwasher sign says ``Clean``. You may use any cups, plates, utensils, pots, etc. in the kitchen. If you need to clean up any spills, use the cleaning supplies under the sink.

-Recycle. There are recycling bins in the kitchen. Please rinse out any remaining food in the recyclables before putting it in the bin.

-Access to the refrigerator: Hotdesk memberships and above may store food in the fridge or pantry. Please do not eat food that is not yours.

Pour-Over Instructions for 1 cup (10oz)

Step 1

Fill the Chemex water tank to the 2 water line (2 is not displayed so you'll have to estimate).

Step 2

Use the scale and weigh out 20-25 grams of beans, place in the grinder and grind at a FINE setting.

Step 3

Add grinds to metal filter and turn on Chemex (Turn to I to keep the burner plate warm, or II if you're going to drink immediately).
