Modular Layout


We’ll post different details about the DSED modular layout on this page related to construction, work sessions, parts needed, parts we have.

Leave a comment with your thoughts and ideas if you’d like!

As of early January DSED has set as a goal to expand the modular layout to include a center island yard. This will run us several hundred dollars and potentially a big dip in our division coffers. We have already received some very helpful pledges though for donations, and we hope to be able to be in a position to have the yard funded soon.

  1. The following are the parts needed for the yard expansion.
    Make sure to see note on the right side for what parts that are pledged.
    In addition to this we have about $300 pledged as well.
    This means we’re over 1/2 ways to have/ pay for the parts needed!

    Keep checking this post for an update to the status of funding the yard expansion!
    If you would like to pledge funds or parts, please leave a comment or contact the superintendent.

    In addition to the parts below, there will also be costs for wood, hardware, paint etc.
