I'm planning on getting a house in the next couple months and I want it to be as poi friendly as possible so I can host weekly spin jams. What would your ideal spinners house have?

I want to set up a good size indoor area with tall ceilings and non-breakable wall mirrors sort of like a dance studio. We lose a lot of days to cold and rain so this is a requirement. A couple UV light strips and a nice sound system would also be nice.

Outside I want a large private burn pad. I figure a big flat tiled patio with a tall privacy fence and maybe a sectioned off fuel dump area. It would be cool to have the area lit by gas tiki torches.

What other goodies do I need?

dude what you are doing is amazing... my mom bought a few plots of land in Port St. Lucie, Florida. we have a house on one of the plots... i did a few things that you described but on a MUCH smaller scale. due to the fact my mom doesnt want to put up ANY fence the backyard WAS off limits until i found a spot. we have a cannal running behind our house (for rain watter to run off) any way we have a kind of tunnel plowed through the ground further down from us so the water runs under ground below the streets. i decided i would build a mini fort in there. it has about 8.5' high ceeling on average... its in an arch shape. and its about 15 feet wide and 20 feet deep. its a nice little spot. i had all this barmitzvah money laying around so i went to homedepot and built a platform that goes above the water and is secured so i can have about 8 people including me in there (i invited my friends over and thats how i got the number). i began to build up a wall towards the back of it so there is only one entrance. i am going to finish up the building of the second wall... i plan to incorporate a door with a locking feature so i can have private spins.

i checked it is LEGAL for me to do this since its technically my property. SWEET!!!

since its a summer/vacation house i need to wait till spring break before i can finish.

wish me luck...

Nay, whatever comes one hour was sunlit and the most high gods may not make boast of any better thing than to have watched that hour as it passed

this is a cool idea, I'm currently transitioning to a new place of residence as soon as I sell my apartment. I'll make sure my New York location is likewise poi friendly for all those who need a place to spin

p.s. No, just in case you're going to ask, I did not misspell Warrior, its supposed to be like that.
