There are times when I rent out a corner of my shop to people I know to do work on their hot rods. ( my friend Eddie is here right now, building a model A.) It has not been an issue to collect rent, and the understanding is clear that if anything interferes with the workings of my shop, or anything comes up missing, they are gone.
I've been doing this for 5 years now, and have had no problems.
If you know of a shop owner who is in need of a little extra cash, you might approach them with the idea.
This is not an ad to rent space, if anyone PM's me or calls me the answer is going to be NO.
my signature lines...not really directed at anyone in particular..
BE different....ACT normal.
No one is completely useless..They can always be used as a bad example
