Something like that. TBH I can't afford, don't want and don't need my
own "office"; I don't need a room or space set aside for just me, but
some storage (secured locker or small filing cabinet maybe) and an
understanding that I'll be there for several hours a day, several days a
week. That's the co-working arrangement I have here at codechops and
similar to how I worked in the UK. I only mention it because while my
budget for after-hours hacking is pretty limited, I have more set aside
for day-work and if I can give that to EMS, its a win-win.

I would be interested to hear about any legal ramifications, that hadn't
occurred to me. I would be fine with an informal arrangement if mixed
hobby/"professional" use is an issue.

For some it will be the reverse. That giant warehouse/shop space is just
begging for large burning man -type projects, vehicle projects,
robot-wars arenas.. its easy to get carried away :) But its flat,
covered space that few of us have at home.
