If there’s a geek paradise in Seattle, a 10,000-square-foot creative playground nestled in Fremont might just be it.

Welcome to MakerHaus, a huge community-based working space for geeks, nerds, designers, makers and anyone else who has ever wanted to build something cool.

After more than two months, MakerHaus has 121 members and seven businesses operating out of the space.

“We’re all about making the inaccessible accessible,” says co-founder Mike Kemery.

The space, located in the former Evo snowboard and ski shop, opened its doors Dec. 6 but has a grand opening event tonight open to the public from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. There will be tours, music, food, drinks, and even Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn will be stopping by.

Kemery, along with his co-founder and wife Ellie, showed GeekWire around earlier this month. Check out our video tour above and the photos below.
