Live in a happy, balanced & healing home:
My current flatmate is moving back to Sweden - I'm looking for another awesome human to share my 2 bedroom suite starting Feb 1st, 2018. (He vacates on the 30th of Jan, 2018) I'm open to short term commitments with a preference for long term.
G/F suite located between Joyce & Patterson skytrain (bus stops/skytrain close by)
$680 all inclusive (wifi, laundry, bills)
It's a two bedroom suite suitable for two people. The room is medium sized, it can come with a good quality double bed if you desire ($50 to current flatmate) and a bedside table. Alternatively, it can come unfurnished. There is a large back yard. Neighbours live above the suite and they are respectful and considerate. The room has a small, built in closet but there is no storage space available in the house. The kitchen/living room is set up so this space is ideal for someone who doesn't have a lot of items. The house owners do not live on the premises. No pets allowed.
The person who moves in would ideally commit to three months. Time thereafter is month to month. Three months is a good amount of time to see if we work well together. Your damage deposit of $340 secures the space and you get it back when/if you move out before I do.
The overall vibe is relaxed but it's not a party house. It's a place for reflection, healing, respect, healthy communication & working on life goals/aspirations. Social time is fully welcomed in fairness (friends/partners), however the space is primarily for two people, not three. If you have a long-term partner, we can discuss what that would potentially look like and vice versa. If our boundaries & needs are expressed, it can set up a space of feeling understood and respected. There will be a basic cleaning routine that happens every two weeks to keep things in order until we get used to each other and how we operate.
I have a pretty strict Mon-Fri schedule and this space would be great for someone with a full-time working/study schedule. I work part-time in film and juggle other independent projects. This usually means I keep it low key on the weekdays. I want to live with someone who has a similar Mon-Fri schedule and who is comfortable with keeping it down after 11pm during weekdays. I work on electronic music from time-to-time so the person I live with has to be okay with music on the weekends sometimes. If music happens on the weekdays, I wrap up any external sound by 9-10pm.
I'm a clean person and usually do my dishes right away as large messes make me feel unorganised. I never leave big messes for my flatmates to walk into. I'd like to live with someone who is clean and integrates cleanliness as a discipline in their life because it keeps good energy flowing. If you're naturally an everyday messy person in a communal space, it won't work out.
I'd like to live with someone who is good at communicating what works/doesn't work for them as new living situations take time to settle into. It really boils down to whether our lifestyles and values match :)
