I love living in SD but our houses are made of paper and staples. I'd love a real house - something colonial and extra bad ass would be super sweet. Alas "historic" in san diego means some shit from the 1950s.

Our cookie cutter homes started around 2004ish or there abouts.

Before that, most houses here were built 1960's+ non historic (obviously) and those are pure brick, slab and crawl space style. Still holding strong.

Historic homes here are super pricy, but I have run cable in a few....holy crap its amazing you truly feel you're going back in time, the smells especially.

I went to one house that's pre civil war.....lol he had such a bad grounding issue that I could not leave him hooked up to Comcast. It was so bad I could run my screw driver over the splitter and sparks flying everywhere.

He showed me the "slavers quarters" and the other house on this chunk of 2-3 acres where the slaves/servants lived.....just awesome I enjoy history.

Historic Summerville (very very close to the house I was speaking of with the bad grounding issue).
http://charleston.craigslist.org/reb/2455625537.html

Most of the historic houses in Summerville (where I live) are bed and breakfast's.

Most historic houses around me (Charleston included) are like this, because most who own them (since it was passed down by family) cannot afford them.

Here is historic Charleston house:

Nice, i got to see some neat estates/plantations in VA for example, slave quarters and all. You can just picture what it was like back in the day.

If the lobby has refrigerated storage, can wait for your grocery delivery (if you have that service) and store it for you upon your return.

They can also be available to wait for like repairmen, or furniture setup, etc. so that you do not have to miss work.

Hrm... I suppose that could be kind of handy. But couldn't you have packages delivered to the office, and then have a graduate assistant sign for it if you're out?

edit: I see you don't appear to be at a university anymore.
