We are about 13 steps up from the ground floor, and the landlord lives downstairs ? an intergenerational Chinese family. They generally leave us alone and are fairly responsive if we need something fixed on the fly. Neighbors are mostly POC and Black folks. Priority goes to queer/trans* BIPOC disabled folx.
LAUNDRY: There?s no washer/dryer hookup but one of the housemates owns a portable washer that hooks to the kitchen sink and a standing air-dryer that are both free for everyone to use.
PETS: Two cats already live here so any other pets will need to stay in your room or live in a tank.

M: 29, white, disabled queer/transmasc person that works from home full-time as a QA engineer. Into video games, cooking/baking, writing, and having friends over for movie nights in non-pandemic times.
WE ARE LOOKING FOR SOMEONE WHO IS:
respectful of common spaces
takes initiative to clean up after themselves
follows through on their word
shares basic values around intersectional feminism, anti-racism, anti-capitalism
We?re not necessarily looking for a communal household but it is essential that we can communicate effectively around house needs, especially. You should take COVID concerns seriously, and can be honest and transparent regarding COVID safety practices. We are not having outside guests over until further notice.
Some of us have chemical sensitivities so please no sprays, perfumes, incense or essential oils. 420 is ok, but cigarettes must be outdoors. Even burning incense inside the room will filter out to the common space.
IF INTERESTED please email me with some info about yourself + housing needs, your COVID safety practices, and what your schedule looks like for a video meeting/tour.
Most of these were taken right around move-in so the space is a bit more lived-in now.
Bedroom - two windows, filled with stuff right after move-in, including a full bed, desk, and a medium TV with ample room to spare.
Bathroom - On the smaller side, but there?s a sink, toilet and shower/tub with sliding doors.
Living room - An L-shaped couch with a coffee table and a dining table to the side. There are ceiling high windows with white curtains.
Back Patio - small red-painted porch overlooking the block, lots of light and greenery with an orange tree out back
