I decided to rent out the basement in a small hotel business. I wanted the basement as my karate studio. I got the section for legitimately low rent. The ceilings are a bit short but doable. The real issue is that there is not enough space. The reason is that the boiler plan for the motel business is in the basement. The owner of the motel business left that little detail out, but he said he cleared everything out plus gave me the dimensions. He did not mention that a giant gas furnace also is living in the section with me. Half of the studio is the heating equipment. The boiler gets super hot plus I am constantly warning students not to touch it! We have to work around the heating unit plus there is not a lot of leftover area. I can barely have my students throw kicks plus do combinations. The only brightside to having the boiler is for the heating aspect. The motel I recognize struggles with having correct heating… People complain all the time that the boiler doesn’t work. It works good, maybe a little too superb in the basement. In the Winter most people is toasty hot in my studio. I don’t have to worry about buying a separate gas furnace for the space. Also in the summer season time when the boiler is off, it is nice to set things on it. I am still hopeful that the motel owner will decide to get new heating unit plus the boiler will be kicked out. Having more section is more important than heating.
