Thank you for your review. I'm sorry you felt the smell in the boat shop was strong. We had actually been painting, nothing toxic, a few days before you arrived. As I pointed out to you, the apartment is a totally separate space, with separate ventilation, heating, and cooling systems. Other than opening the door to enter the apartment, there is no shared ventilation whatsoever, and there was no smell or order in the apartment itself. The entrance from the shop is a steel door with weatherstripping. The shop has its own ventilation system, exhausting to outside, that keeps a negative pressure on the shop space. I don't feel the order of paint in the shop was strong, but obviously, it left an impression you carried with you into the apartment.
