Q: I've been an avid follower of your site for 3 years now and it was a major inspiration for my apartment in Chicago. I've recently gotten the urge to move to a new place but I'm having trouble finding resources on the particular type of apartment I'm looking for.

I'm an engineer by profession but an avid welder, motorcycle builder and electronics hobbyist when I get home from work. I'm looking for a place that will allow me to essentially weld, hammer, make noise, entertain, show off and be creative in. One solution is to have a separate workshop but having one attached or a part of my apartment would be amazing. The only type of work space that would allow me to do this is an artist loft, live / work space.

There is very little information on the internet regarding these types of spaces and I was interested if you could post a question to your readers regarding them. Maybe this way, I could find some inspiration or motivation as to what exactly to look / search for in a city like Chicago.
