I’m moving to an awesome apartment in North Oakland soon, and need two roomies. Move in is late August/Sep 1st. It’s a four bedroom place in the awesome Temescal neighborhood, right at 51st & Telegraph. It’s a well-kept, recently painted, bright, open, top-floor (of 2 floors) apartment. Rent’ll be super low, in the $600-650 range, with a $250 deposit(!). The rooms are mid-sized, 10x10 to 12x12. Ish. No measurements, yet!
So far it’s me and another dude, two friendly, lightly geeky guys in our 30’s. We’re both in theater; I’m an actor, and he’s one of each, both acting and stage-managing. We’re friendly and energetically generous, not defensive or closed. It’ll be a friendly, hang out in the living room house with as many dinner parties as we can manage and regular Rock Band tournaments. Neither of us drink much at all, and while there will be parties, they’ll be of the dinner and video game variety. No pot smokers, either. We’re low key guys past our partying days, young at heart but in love with a good night’s sleep.
So whatcha think? Want an awesome new place? Or know of anyone friendly and cool who’s looking for some rad roommates? I’ll have pictures soon, so PM me if you’re interested at all!
Awesome, thanks, guys! I always worry that I’m going to come off as a whiny little nerd in my housing posts. I like being honest about being compassionate and generous, but being ‘cool’ runs pretty counter to both those things.
Feel free to pass this along to anyone you think would make a good fit.
Yes, but what none of you are factoring in are the daily fumes of fried chicken and cookies permeating from the downstairs Bakesale Betty’s. Before you know it all four of you happy roomates won’t be able to walk up the stairs to your $600 rooms as you’ll all weigh two hundred pounds. The only worse thing I could imagine is being downwind of Zachary’s… I’d give it maybe a year before I couldn’t see my toes.
If ever you need someone to fill in a spot at one of your dinner parties, let me know, I’m seven blocks away :)
