Helen, David and Nami live in a two-bedroom attic apartment in a historic mansion that was converted to apartments. The space has its perks, such as the walls painted yellow (Helen's favorite color) and its convenience to downtown Oakland and public transit. But the awkward attic space also has its drawbacks: small windows resulting in low light, weird ceilings angles, and a tiny kitchen. Despite that, the three roommates admit that its awkwardness has made coming up with solutions a fun challenge.
