Welcome to the forum! Are you planning on sticking around with us or just looking for a shop and leaving? If you're sticking around please complete your profile with first name and location. You can add your name to your signature line so it will show in each post.

I assume you've checked with local realtors, they can probably steer you better than anyone. Then again, someone here might have a line on such a shop.

Are you looking just for a building? A building equipped with tools? To buy? Top rent? A shop that will make what you want? You do not say what you really want?

Since you are specific on the square footage, can we assume you want to rent, borrow or buy a shop?... not hire one? Good luck on buying a shop that small anyplace. Renting a space would seem more practical. Do you have your own tools?

Better get back with us with some specific info, so's we can better advise.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

I am planning on hanging around and hopefully learning more to apply to my reedmaking for bagpipes.

I am looking to hopefully rent for max of $700 per month. Dont need a huge space and I have my own tools etc. Moving my business to the Streamwood area in Illinois.
So I just need a space where I can continue making my reeds for scottish bagpipes.

Looking to rent mainly but buy if had too.

Just need a fairly small space which could be a room that is part of a bigger workshop.

I need ability to play my bagpipes sometimes to test reeds etc before sending them out.

It is a established business moving to new location of Streamwood in Illinois.
Interested in mainly the rough area between Streamwood and Wood Dale Illinois. Looking for rent $700 or lower.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

That sounds like a cool woodworking project. Be sure to post some photos when you get your place and start production.

I would advise not putting your email address in open forum. Spambots will get you!
