I know markets differ from place to place and all, but I just thought I'd get some opinions. Do you think that $900 a month is too much for a commercial space? I think it's 2400 sq feet. However, I would have to install the kitchen myself as it does not have one currently.

Whoa. That is huge! That's almost the size of my house!
I think $900 month for something like that is more than fair.

Expensive. How many cakes do you have to sell to cover it?

that's less a square ft than i pay, and i consider my place pretty cheap.

do you need that much space?

i had to install everything in my place too...it was a beauty salon in a former life...so it was already plumbed

I pay $1500 for 1150 sq ft in a strip mall. ($1150 rent + the diff for maintenance, taxes, etc that the landlord charges). It was an empty box when I leased it.

That'd be a screaming deal in Seattle!

I'm glad I came back to reread the thread. I feel like such a butt. So sorry Muse.
My shop will actually be in my house. Totally separated, but still part of the house. My rent is however I decide to split it. When all said, and done I'll have approx 600 sq to fit my fat nonreading butt in.

On a side note I will never be able to do a reverse shell border LOLOL. That is unless I stand on my head, and look backwards at it. icon_biggrin.gif LOLOL

That much space would be about $5 - 7000/month around here.. depending on where you were. I was looking (just for s's and giggles) at rents in Portsmouth and there was a beautiful place right downtown that was 2100 sqft and it worked out to $6000/month for just rent.. nevermind taxes and utilities.

That's a steal!!! We pay $1700 for 1020 sq. ft., but it is also a new construction. I say go for it!
