POSTED: June 11, 2017  Looking for House Mates

Hi! We're Caitlin and Nathaniel, and we just bought a 2 bed 1.5 bath house in Puget Ridge Cohousing. We're looking for another couple to rent one of the bedrooms and share our home with us! Puget Ridge is an amazing community that we are thankful to be a part of, and we'd like to bring that sense of community and intentionality into our house with other people (e.g. cooking house meals, spending time together, making consensus decisions, playing games, having interesting conversations, etc.). We enjoy living in a household that is larger than the traditional nuclear family, and we're looking for people with similar interests.


We both enjoy trying to work on positive societal change towards social and environmental justice, and we're hoping to find house mates interested in this as well, so that our home can be one of supporting and bolstering each other in this endeavor. There are many in Puget Ridge working on these issues as well, so if this sounds like you, you should find a happy home here.


As a member of co-housing, all adults including renters share in the responsibilities that make the community function, such as joining a committee, attending monthly meetings, participating in work parties, etc.


The house is 1,100 sq ft, and also has a 200 sq ft attached porch. Besides the room you'll rent, the 2nd floor bathroom and entire first floor (half bath, kitchen, living room, dining room, and porch) are shared space and our desire is to set up the space together. We like living on the smaller side, and it would work out best if you do too. Street parking is available for any car(s).


We're asking for $950/mo. If you're interested and you think you'd be a good fit for us, but this would be a financial hardship for you, please contact us anyway because we are open to renting on a sliding scale. The right fit is what is most important to us. Water, sewer, garbage are included in rent, but electricity, gas, and Internet are in addition to it.


Unfortunately, Nathaniel is allergic to most mammals, so we will only be able to consider hypoallergenic pets on a case-by-case basis.


Room is available now.


If this sounds like the right fit for you, let us know! Please e-mail us with a bit about yourselves and why you're interested in living at Puget Ridge, and in our shared house in particular.


Looking forward to talking more,

Caitlin and Nathaniel
