The six senior men who live in this house say its proximity to Brown Street makes it a frequent pit stop for their friends.

The living room is mostly used for hanging out, but it also houses the toaster, since the kitchen outlets don’t work.The crowded kitchen has slanted floors, but the roommates make it work.The residents living in this spacious downstairs bedroom have to cope with noise from people walking through the student neighborhood.This upstairs bedroom is equipped with an Xbox and an air conditioning unit that drowns out noise from the rest of the house.An unofficial third roommate often sleeps on the futon in the other upstairs bedroom.This bedroom also has access to the house’s attic.The house’s only bathroom is big, but very hot.When showering, the roommates have to choose between hot water and strong water pressure.The side lot on this house makes up for the small front and backyards.

    Ahem, the “attic” in picture #7 is actually named “Keith Martin’s Stabbin’ Cabin”

    My initials are in the outside porch steps… I think some cans of beans and a 3 wood may have been used that same night as well…

    wow. remember when someone crapped under that bathroom sink during one of the parties. Or when we broke in through the attick and outside windows. Or the shower ice bucket game?? I bet you can still see all the nail marks from when we boarded off the room at the top of the stairs too.

    Or remember when we went to the library to study? And went to bed by 8:30pm sharp after a can of tuna or two.

    I stopped going to this house after I got served fowl beer.
