spare bedroom studio

I had my studio in an upstairs spare bedroom for a few years.. Now
I have it in a downstairs bedroom, formerly playroom, formerly
den. It was a lot of trips up and down the stairs some days but most
of the time it was no big deal. (Until the day I made that 50 lb.
vessel, what was I thinking?) I have wood floors in both. And I
have used a piece of vinyl flooring or a floorcloth under the wheel.
You can damp mop wood floors. It's standing water that warps
them. I would definitely get rid of the carpet or cover it like some-
one else suggested. I keep my studio clean and don't have a problem
tracking dust through the house.

I definitely think if you will throw more in the spare room that you
should go for it. I've done it for five years now.

Good luck!
