Renting Commercial Space: Florida
Here is St. Petersburg myself and two friends rent a commercial space of about 2000 sq. ft. for a very reasonable annual lease. It has 220V service, 18' ceilings, huge roll-up door access, a bathroom and a small "office" which probably uses about 150 sq. ft. We put in our own lift - a 4-poster - and assembled our tools collectively including a shop crane, engine stands, compressor, etc. It's in a commercial strip developed to service small businesses. It's not in a great part of town, of course, but it is all commercial property in the area so security is pretty good security. Given the economy it may be worthwhile looking for something like that in your region of the country.
