Home studio insurance?

Anyone have an insured home studio? I'm getting ready to build my shop but can't find anyone to cover the house w/ an attached (or separate) glass studio.

Going to be hard to do any sort of permanent setup w/o it.

Inquire with The Glass Art Society and the American Craft Council. Another possibility may be the Crafts Emergency Relief Fund.

I might start with an insurance broker and see if you can take the opposite approach, look for a business insurance policy and tell them if they will insure your business they get the house business too. A business insurance broker may be more understanding of the business and willing to make the connections to get the house part covered.

I found a local marine insurer who was happy to write cars, home, umbrella, business (incl. studio building) for decent prices and good coverage. The only thing they declined was motorcycle- said I could do better elsewhere.

I don't know if Florida is just terrible (it is) but none of the insurances I've spoken w/ or my broker (a glass-studio specific guy out of some state in the midwest) and my local broker can't find anyone to touch a home business of my type.

I know people have studios on their property in other states...

check with Susan Gott in Tampa, as I recall she had her studio on her home premises.
