BRIGHT MORNING STAR is a six-member Greenwood household with a mix of professionals, activists, artists, and musicians (sometimes all of the above in one!). We are looking for two people who will fit in well with our family-style, well organized, diverse, lgbtqia*-friendly and inclusive community. We’re particularly interested in people who enjoy shared activities, especially eating together, and in people who are active in movements for social and environmental justice.
The house is 100+ years old with lots of character. The currently available bedrooms are each about 10x10 feet, on the main floor. They would be most suitable for people who enjoy daily interactions with housemates and are active mostly in the daytime. No kegs, smoking [of anything] or pets are allowed in the house.
We share all costs: Rent: 519, Utilities: 79, Food: 292. (rent depends on how many people are living here. $890 is the amount charged when 6 people are in residence): (the “food” cost reflects mostly organic food for shared dinners and all other meals; also vitamins and other supplements, shampoo, toilet and facial tissue, dental care stuff, and the miscellaneous odds and ends that a home needs—like a new spatula, or a special cleanser, or… ). There is a required refundable deposit of $200.
We share housework, take turns going food shopping and cooking dinner, and we pitch in and help each other. We keep our common areas clean and orderly. The co-op provides Internet access, a dishwasher, and a clothes washer and dryer. We have solar hot water and solar powered electricity! We have ample on-street parking, secure indoor bicycle storage, and convenient bus access to the U-District, downtown, and points north.
Please be prepared to give us references for your source of income [not the amount, just verifying that you’ll be able to pay your share] and your previous experience in community living
