Going back to the housing discussion, in Chicago there are lots of houses divided into two apartments, one on each floor. I'll be living alone, but I have a dog who loves to run around, so I would love access to a yard (but I can't justify/afford renting out an entire house for one person). Does anyone know if there is this type of housing anywhere around Berkeley? Or where I should look if I want a yard, however small? I'm willing to commute a bit.
In the area, there are a lot of Victorians that are divided up into apartments - not necessarily one at each floor though. I have seen several in Alameda, which also has an awesome dog park. However, the commute is a pain.
