:-/ I'm not sure if that space would've worked out anyway. But thanks for thinking of me.
It's a location issue. I realized that I have a few more constraints on the locations I can live than I previously remembered. Otherwise I'd be much more positive about the idea.
The same goes for your friend's house. That actually sounded really interesting. I'm going to have to email him back. It's possible I will be interested, but not likely because of where he lives. :-/
I need to be north of the locks and lake union and stuff. I would like to be west of I5, but a little east isn't out of the question. There are a few other things that should be true about the place, but those are hard to quantify here.
Thanks a lot for referring me to your friend BTW.
