I'm a digital artist looking for somewhere quiet and generally smell-free to stay. I'm self-employed, and while not employed full time (I mostly work on personal projects), I have enough in savings to last me a couple of years at least. Since I work from home it means I tend to be home quite a bit, however I do get out for a walk/cycle most days. I find it usually works best if I make my room my office, so as to keep distractions to a minimum for both myself and anyone else in the house.
I'm fairly quiet and am self-sufficient cooking/cleaning wise, and I have my own bed, desk, kitchen utensils etc. I'm definitely not a morning person (nor a heavy sleeper), so if you're an early bird or arrive home in the early hours it might not be suitable unless you're skilled at moving about with ninja-like stealth. :)
