Not only will you find LED lighting, WiFi capability, and running water, design-loving hearts will go pitter-patter for tropical wallpaper, a ceiling handmade of natural and oiled California redwood, a pullout sofa/queen bed, a wardrobe made of hand-worked Baltic birch plywood, and a fully functioning kitchen. // $85K; for more info, go to sfbay.craigslist.org.
