I run This Place

The materials are "free" in that they're stuff left over from past projects. You know, you're building something... You order 1000' of pipe. At the end of the day you have 60' left over. What do you do with it? Well, we hang on to it in case we ever have a need for it and.... Well, that's where all the materials are coming from: the spare parts left over from the past 30 years or so of work around here.

On a related note....

There was a meeting today. One of our managers was trying to get $60k to build the Pipe Dream from a program who could benefit from it's existance. Didn't hear how it went. Keeping my fingers crossed.
