It’s HUGE. There’s 3 floors, a basement apartment, 3 kitchens and 13 people living here. It’s comprised of single rooms and two full apartments that are still part of the house if that makes sense. Here’s a breakdown:
The basement—1 full apartment with kitchen & bathroom (4 girls).
(The basement apartment has its own entrance so I probably won’t ever see them, but technically it’s part of the same house.)
First floor—1 single room (me), 1 full apartment with kitchen & bathroom (4 guys)
Second floor—2 single rooms (2 guys), 1 bathroom
Third floor—2 single rooms (2 girls), kitchen, washer/dryer, 1 bathroom
There’s also two different outdoor decks/patios, I believe. From one of them you can see the Capitol building and the Supreme Court—and not just from a distance! they’re like right there.
I LOVE this location—it’s insanely close to the Capitol and it’s such a nice area :).
housemates all seem chill too. so far they’re all in their early/mid 20’s and a lot of them work on the Hill for Senators or Congressmen.
the only major con is that there isn’t a rice cooker. boo. I’ll have to see if I can find one at Target or something because I’m pretty sure I need one.
and also, it’s really hard to not have a car or a rolling shopping cart thing. I need to buy so much stuff tomorrow (hangers, a drying rack, a rice cooker, a huge bag of rice, pillows, a blanket, groceries, etc). but I have to carry it all back by myself using the bus or walking. this is going to require multiple trips out and pretty much all day tomorrow. but that’s what weekends are for though I guess!
