My fiance and I are students and young professionals living 7 miles outside Washington, D.C. I'm so frustrated with the lack of space to do our work. Currently we rely on wall-to-wall bookshelves, an oversized desk, a very old, ugly, and creaky filing cabinet, and one office chair. It would make our long days and challenging commitment to our studies so much easier if we had a reliable and feasible workspace to share. We'd love for the office to function as a place for guests to stay, too - that would relieve the burden of scrambling for the air mattress or forcing guests (including my 80-year old grandmother...) to sleep on the couch.
