This post is an experiment to find out if there's a better way of searching for a good group house.

Nobody I know in the area is looking to move, so I've been doing the standard "email people who post ads for open rooms in houses that seem unlikely to contain rodents/serial killers/rodent serial killers" thing for a few weeks now. While I've met some nice people and seen some nice houses, it's extremely time-consuming and nothing has really "clicked" yet. Since it seems to me that one of the most important parts of any group house is the group itself, even if you're not necessarily a collection of bestest friends forever, I'm creating this ad for people who might want to try figuring out who you'll be living with first, and THEN finding a place to rent. If you're interested, just send an email with a bit about yourself and what you're looking for in a house. I'll pick people who seem like good fits and we can get together for a happy hour or something to see if this could work.

As for me, I can provide some basics and then get more descriptive via email. I'm male, in my mid-20s, originally from the Midwest, and I work on Capitol Hill. I enjoy plenty of Comedy Central and nerding it up with a few History/Discovery Channel shows. I'm a big sports nut, an omnivore, a non-smoker, and not too messy but not a neat freak, at least when it comes to my own personal space common areas get priority. I'm one of the world's foremost experts in the field of making incredibly obscure pop culture references in everyday conversation. I like animals, but I won't be coming with any. Over the next year, I'm looking to learn more about building web sites and cooking.

What I'm looking for in a house:

- Ideally it would be near the Hill, but generally near a Metro stop is good enough

- Central air/heat

- Rent under $1100/person

- In a neighborhood with some other group houses, or at least other young-to-youngish people

If all that sounds good to you, just shoot an email on over.

cats are OK
