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.
