| studio renting tips for artists |   


Planning to rent a temporary studio to accomplish your artistic plan in a time window ?  
Be prepared to face some characteristic details :   

1   
you pay them rent for 30 days.   

2   
before you are in, they ask you to give away your first 5 days from your payed 30 days   
FOR SOMEBODY MORE IMPORTANT ARTIST THAN YOU THAT IS IN BEFORE YOU.​   

​3   
while you are in, they come to make repairs for 5 days during your payed 30 days.   
With their own keys. Without ringing the doorbell.   
FOR SOMEBODY MORE IMPORTANT ARTIST THAN YOU THAT IS COMING IN AFTER YOU.   

4   
they say : show us your good attitude and charming personality and help us make repairs.
During your stay, surely you can work some for a good cause for free,
to keep this studio in good shape and available FOR MORE IMPORTANT ARTISTS THAN YOU.  

5   
you get the flu during your stay. They see how ill you are, but NOBODY asks :   
do you need help, I can buy food also for you, I go shopping anyway, no problem !  

6   
a week before your payed 30 days are over, they will ask you : when are you leaving ?   
Why should they think that you are going away before your payed 30 days ?   
THE MORE IMPORTANT ARTIST THAN YOU PLANS TO COME IN EARLIER !   

​7   
as you are leaving, they will say that you have flaws in your soft character   
and a working artist may not be that flexible to demands from the outside  
and you should be MORE RUDE TO PERSONS LESS IMPORTANT THAN YOU.   

8  
as a conclusion of your stay, you tell them, that this working period of 3o days  
did not quite go as you planned, and they will say :   
you cannot expect to succeed every time. 

Welcome again to have a nice stay !

Hi Chas, @Chas Wyatt, yep, I admit I sometimes write directly from my own personal experience and this might have been one of those times. Yes. And even one of the most fresh incidents to be added to my memoirs. Your working space renting stories reminded me of other occcasions too ... hmmmm ... I might let my mind in that ( well ) hidden area of my past and let something spill out of there and it usually ends up in some written format to an occasional blog post.

About comparing #1 which is " more comfortable having a space where I live, than a space I commute to " : I also have tried these both, and I found out that I need some fresh air between sleeping and working periods, so if I work where I sleep, I should run around the house once or twice and come back in and you know what, the coffee tastes better.
