Buy a studio
and hope they throw in a good house. Ron told me that they have always looked at the studio and the house was secondary. Actually they have a paradise property. The studio is huge with an nice little apartment upstairs with bathroom and shower for guests. That comes in handy when you have 4 day long wood firings. Ron has two gas kilns, his Ratagama and a couple of electric kilns. They are blaming all the snow and ice on me. They cancelled schools with a couple of inches of snow. God, we'd have to cancel life in Canada if that were the case.
