Swoon City has a room available starting January 1st for $370.
The house is three floors with a usable basement (currently housing a drum set, Guy’s art studio, tools, storage stuff, and a washer and dryer but there’s plenty of space that isn’t being utilized if you needed room for making art or storage), 7 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a big front porch. The room available is the largest one in the house and is on the second floor with bay windows and access out onto the roof. It’s a huge room.
We’re all clean and organized and are looking for someone who is the same. We’re most interested in people who are engaged in their own shit, personal projects, school, bands, community projects, etc. We keep a pretty quiet, but active household. We range in age from 23-30 but are seeking people on the higher end of that range.
Guy is a special needs therapist, artist, and musician. Laura just finished undergrad at Bryn Mawr and works for Girls Rock Philly and as a dog walker. She’s a creative writer. Ramsey is a nanny and comic book artist. Mikey is a musician (plays in the Ambulars and has a solo project) and graphic designer. Tiff is a musician (plays in Batty, EZ Discount) and works at the arboretum. Guy and Laura are a couple. They occupy two rooms on the second floor. Mikey and Ramsey are a couple, they occupy three rooms on the third floor – and Tiff has the fourth room up there. The open room will be on the second floor.
We’re capped out on animals, so we can’t live with any more – and obviously you need to be friendly with animals. We currently have three cats, Pippa, Lucy and Albert. Mostly they stick around the 2nd floor but Albert will be all up in your stuff if you leave your door open. Rover the dog also lives there, and comes with shedding, but is otherwise one of the best roommates you’ll ever have.
We are open to all genders and gender identities, are queer friendly, etc. Currently, there are three women and two men. We’re all cis. We’re currently half vegetarian, two of us don’t drink at all and the others do from time to time. We are cool with all variations of that stuff. We wouldn’t be down with smoking in the house, though, and generally we don’t keep really late hours so someone on a similar schedule or respectful of our before midnight bedtimes is ideal.
We have a monthly house meeting/dinner and a chore chart, so ideally we are looking for folks who are into loosely organized living and open communication. We’re not hippies, or activists or anything, really. We just think it’s easier to keep our big house functioning well that way. That makes us sound a lot more communal than we are. We do like to see our roommates every now and then so someone who will hang out around the house is preferred, as opposed to someone who will just keep to themselves in their own room.
