I am considering setting up a workspace/studio in my utility room in the basement, which has a hot water tank and two furnaces. Here are the warnings on those units.
I wonder if this is a good idea in general to set up a workspace in the utility room. Is it a risky move? Any advice, safety concerns or precautions should be considered or put in place? For example, I am thinking about adding a carbon monoxide detector in the utility room to give an earlier warning in case of CO leak.
Edit: I am planning to use it for, say, art projects, building model gundam figures etc, and/or building robotic projects. I am also open to suggestion of what this room should be used for if those projects put it in higher risk. I just want to better use the space if possible.
