I am a PhD student in Marine Biology (Dalhousie University). In the house, there are 3 other grad students/post-docs (from Canada, Germany and Portugal). They are all easygoing, love to cook, and love to tell stories about their field trips and adventures.
The house is eco-friendly: It is 100% powered with electricity from renewable sources (i.e. bullfrog power). All lights have been upgraded to LED. The furnace burns wood. All exterior walls have been insulated... and more.
Note: Allison and Diego (i.e. previous managers) are still around (two blocks away). Let me know if you want to get in touch with them.
