Hello, I hope this isn't off topic. We have an adjacent separate 2 room plus kitchen apartment available in our beautiful, established co-living, multigenerational community in Piedmont / Oakland CA. Details below, feel free to reach out if you might be interested. Lucy.

We are a child friendly community that values cultivating friendship, openness, connection, fun, playfulness, and good communication. In non-Covid times, we’ve hosted many events in our communal space (concerts, readings, dancing, dinners). The Available Space: The Apartment. Available now! This space is attached to the common areas of the house, and has two rooms connected by a walk-through closet, small kitchen, and private bathroom (shower only, no tub though you can use tubs in other bathrooms) It’s currently arranged as 2 bedrooms, shared by a couple and a kid but you could easily set up a home office or craft room or anything else. Pet-friendly. It has its own entrance as well as being accessible from the main part of the house. Rent for this space is 1400. Accessibility: 4 steps up to the front of the house. Apartment is on the ground floor but the bathroom of the apartment is down a flight of stairs. Both interior rooms are on the 2nd floor. We are not currently a low/no scent house. The House The rest of the house is big and airy with an enormous amount of common space, and very nicely sound-isolated (great for living with kids!). There’s good outside space, gardening options, basement for storage, fireplaces, workshop, elliptical, hot tub, and a treehouse, among many delightful surprises. Who We Are We're 5 adults (in 30s and 40s) and 2 kids aged 1.5 and 2.5. Our varied interests include music, cooking, social justice, dance, theater, board games, spirituality, building stuff, reading, and psychology. We love coming together through shared activities and creativity. Countries of origin include Austria, Britain, Pakistan, and the US. Six of the seven people are Caucasian, one is Southeast Asian. There are two cis-women and three cis-men (not including the 1 and 2 year olds in case you're adding, who have yet to make their gender identities known) We’ve been around for 8 years so we do have a lot of functional systems worked out including a weekly shopper (now online shopping since Covid)--so you may never have to shop again! We also have a weekly house meal, cooked by two people, meetings twice a month, and other chores divvied up. Who You Are Experienced in communal living and excited about living with kids even if you don't have any of your own! We are seeking to build chosen family. You have energy to contribute towards building the community both in emotional and more tangible ways. You are skilled at communicating about challenges and differences, and are excited to bring humor and playfulness to the process. We welcome applicants of all ages, races, genders, sexual orientations, etc. Raising Kids Together Living with children cooperatively takes some special sensitivity and cooperation beyond the usual living together; we’re happy to talk about parenting styles and other situations. The Covids Following local health guidelines. Adults in the house are vaccinated (assuming you are too!), but the kids won’t be for a while, so it takes some care to keep everyone safe. Happy to chat about how we coordinate that together. Financial Nitty Gritty Shared food + utilities is about 500/month per adult which seems like a lot but this is all the food you need (lots of organic and omnivore), and we get folks' individual favorites (we don’t just share house staples). Also, heating this old large house is costly in the chilly months. Also includes biweekly house cleaners. Kid's contribution starts at 25% at age 2 and goes up gradually with age. If that sounds interesting, send a message sharing a little about yourselves and what your favorite parts of community living are!
