7BR / 3Ba 3000ft2 available aug 1
rent period: monthly
We're looking for another grad student or young professional to rent a room in our intentional community house. We will have one room available July 1st for $650, another available August 1st for $590, and another available late August for $590. You'd be living with a grad student from Eastern Europe studying engineering, a grad student in geography, a professional woman from Puerto Rico working in finance, and a woman who works at Goodwill. We like to eat together like share meals, play games, watch movies, host barbecues, hike, camp, bike and garden. In addition to our human housemates, we live with a Springer Spaniel, Aussiedoodle, and Russian blue cat. Unfortunately, we can't take anymore animals, but our animals love to make new friends.

The house is a quiet, large, updated, fully furnished Victorian with 7 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and lots of common spaces. We're 3 blocks from the green line near Lexington and University in the old St. Paul neighborhood of Frogtown. We're 1.8 miles from Como Lake and close to lots of Asian and American grocery stores. We're a 33 minute train ride from the West Bank and 28 minutes from the East Bank.

Frogtown has always been an immigrant neighborhood, originally settled by European railroad workers and later Vietnamese, Latino, and Hmong families. It has always been an affordable neighborhood for middle and lower middle income families. You will see lots of young couples with children and seniors walking down the streets of Frogtown. Our immediate neighborhood gathers occasionally for barbecues and chitchat.

We're looking for people who love the earth and who strive to take care of it by recycling and reducing their use of plastic. We're looking for people who like to eat and cook at home, so that we can see each other during mealtimes. We'd also like people who are neat and clean and who wouldn't mind doing a weekly cleaning job to help keep the house clean. If you like to garden, all the better, because our house is surrounded by flower gardens, and the Frogtown Farm is about 4 blocks away, where people can grow vegetables.

We follow a few rules in the house to help keep it clean and to protect people's privacy. We don't allow overnight guests unless they are visiting from out of town. Given that 85% of the dirt that comes into the house comes off the bottom of shoes, we take our shoes off at the front door and put them in the trunk under the stairs, or in our bedrooms.

In order to reduce damage to carpets and furniture, and to not attract mice and bugs, we eat only in the kitchen and dining room. In order to keep the kitchen clean, we wash dry and put away our dishes and wipe off the stove, table and countertops, right after we eat.

In order to keep the bathroom clean, everyone takes a weekly turn cleaning the sink and toilet in the bathroom they use. We have one on each floor.

If you are interested in community living, and like the way we have set up the house, please contact us.
