Noise - Please Read!
We have two small boys ages 8 and 6. They are loud and our house is not particularly well insulated for sound. They wake up between 6:30 - 7:00 am and go to school around 8 am. They go to bed between 7:45 and 8:15 pm. When they are home and running around, you may well hear them in the studio. This has not been a problem for previous tenants, but if you are very sensitive to noise, this may not be a good fit for you.

Because the studio is right underneath our boys' room, we need our tenant to be respectful as well. Having friends over for dinner is fine; a late-night party wouldn't be OK.
