Fox.Build can be called many things: it’s a collaborative workspace, occasionally called a co-working space, makerspace, hackspace or social club, located in the heart of downtown St. Charles, Illinois. Fox.build is a great place to work, especially if you typically work from home and feel like you’re missing the sense of community you might find at a traditional office. We’re a friendly bunch and are always looking for new members. Feed your creativity; make a new thing or improve an old one; just have a space to work on your business, your hobby, or your passion.

Fox.Build began as both a co-working environment and maker space to give its founders a location to build their own small businesses. And this entrepreneurial spirit remains a foundation of Fox.Build. The space provides a place for collaboration and support to help enable individuals to begin their own ventures. We have members with expertise in:
- Mechanical Design
- Sales, Marketing, and Promotion
- Web Design
Fox.Build has hosted numerous classes on a variety of subjects. Here are the notes and slides from some of them.
