Ground Court Yard:
size: about 2.7 m wide.
but only for temporary use, since needed as parking for motorbike, and entrance to house.
Top Yard:
size: about 2.7 m wide, about 5.5 m long
but difficult, since also used for laundry,
neighbours complain about noise (i.e no power tools for 2 hours at noon, and in evening), and not well rain protected
Means: each time a lot of time is wasted with setting up the shop and cleaning up afterwards.
