The space
ABOUT THE LOCATION
- To be clear and transparent, my space is for the practical person that just needs an affordable place to sleep, cook, and go to work. There's little to no communal space other than the kitchen and backyard patio. However, the location is very convenient. I live in walking distance to the North Lamar Transit center with express buses to UT/Downtown, Domain, Arboretum, Mueller, the Triangle in 5-20 mins. Within walking distance to many amazing restaurants, taco trucks, lots of convenience and grocery stores, Target.

ABOUT THE ROOM
- furnished, private bedroom room.
- there is only one shared bathroom It's never been a problem because everyone living here is considerate and cleans after themselves.
- Hi Speed internet/wifi is private and secure through Spectrum
- There is no living room space so ideal for someone who just needs an affordable place to rest, shower, and prepare meals in a clean, comfortable atmosphere. There is a private backdoor patio.
- onsite laundry and off street guest parking available for guests. You can also purchase an official resident parking pass for $1/day.

ABOUT THE KITCHEN
- Each person will have their own personal labeled shelf space in the fridge as well as the pantry.
- Feel free to contribute and help yourself to anything in the "FREE TO SHARE" cabinet. please keep all personal food in your labeled spaces otherwise.
- There is tea, pantry goods, cooking oil, spices, dishes, pots and pans on the labeled shelves that you are welcome to use. I just ask that you clean up after yourself and be mindful of the other housemates particularly the ones sleeping.

A LITTLE ABOUT ME
- Asian male, straight (if that matters to you. gender, orientation, and race are not important to me as much as character)
- reasonably laid-back, fair, considerate, and clean. But don't take my word for it. Please see what previous guests have said.
- don't drink or smoke, I just get high on music, food, movement/sports, and art. okay if you smoke but please keep it outside. There is an backyard patio.
- I am an introvert, keep to myself and respect your privacy. I also try to be available to answer questions.
- morning person and creature of habit, wake around 6:30AM and off to bed around 9:30PM.
- Although I prefer to live with a roommate I could also consider a friend, I do not expect that. My minimum expectation is that rent is paid on time and that you pick up after yourself.
- I write, edit photos, make visual arts, and record music from home so I prefer to have a quiet house the house to myself for a stretch of 5-8 hours and am looking for compatible guests
- My intention is to find a balance between meeting my needs for quiet work/creativity hours and providing an environment where you feel comfortable and at ease in your temporary home.

Thank you for taking the time to read and understand all of this and I look forward to meeting you.

KITCHEN:
Each person will have their own personal shelf space in the fridge as well as the pantry.
Feel free to contribute and help yourself to anything in the “FREE TO SHARE" cabinet but please only eat your own food otherwise.

There is tea, pantry goods, cooking oil, spices, dishes, pots and pans on the labeled shelves that you are welcome to use. I just ask that you clean up after yourself and be mindful of the other housemates particularly the ones sleeping downstairs. Generally the kitchen is available 7AM-11PM and for cooking between 8AM-9PM.

BATHROOMS:
the bathroom is shared. It's never been in this you since everyone here is mindful to keep their bathroom time relatively short. In return for your brevity and openness to share, I take care of and provide a clean bathroom.

GENERAL:
Please turn off lights when private rooms are not in use.

Please clean up after yourself. We have a hard enough time cleaning up after ourselves. ;-)

There are notes posted around the house with info on house rules, best practices and general info.

There is no curfew. You may come and go as you please. Just keep in mind that the housemates go to bed around 11PM and wake around 7AM.

Please be respectful of the other guests in the house by keeping noise level down. 10:00 pm is usually a good quiet time.

This is a smoke and drug free house. (If you are a smoker, there is a backyard patio)

No pets please (allergies and all that).

Location

Austin, Texas, United States

To be clear and transparent, the apartment complex is not impressive but the location is convenient. I live in walking distance to many amazing restaurants, taco trucks, lots of , lots of convenience and grocery stores, Target, and the N. Lamar Transit center with express buses to UT/Downtown, Domain, Arboretum, Mueller, Crestview, the Triangle, and all Austin has to offer in 15/20 mins.
Although it's an older complex, the units are nicely renovated and the neighborhood is safe. My space is for the practical person that just needs an affordable place to sleep, cook, and go to work.
I aim to provide open communication and a comfortable bed in a clean, quiet home.

During your stay
Current roommates are clean and respectful. No pets are allowed but smoking is okay outside in the back patio
.::A little bit about me::.
- middle age Asian male, straight (if that matters to you, gender and race are not important to me as much as character)
- I'm reasonably laid-back, fair, considerate, and clean. But don't take my word for it. Previous roommates have left reviews (see third photo)
- I don't drink or smoke, I just get high on music, food, movement/sports, and art. I'm looking for someone with a similar approach to life. I'm okay if you smoke but please keep it outside. There is an backyard patio.
- I am an introvert, keep to myself.
- I am a morning person and creature of habit, wake around 7:30AM and off to bed around 11:30PM.
- Although I prefer to live with a roommate I could also consider a friend, I do not expect that. My only caveat is that rent is paid on time and that you pick up after yourself.
I write and record music from home so I prefer to have the house to myself from 9:30AM-6PM or at least from 11AM-6PM and am looking for compatible housemates
There is only one shared bathroom for everyone in the house. With compatible work schedules, it's never been an issue if everyone is mindful to keep bathroom use between 10-15 minutes each time.
I want to communicate my expectations clearly rather than have a misunderstanding and create resentment later. My intention is to find a balance between meeting my needs for quiet work/study hours and providing an environment where you feel comfortable and at ease in your temporary home.
What I am Looking for
- I am looking for one person to rent out the room through end of April and open to longer term or month-to-month after
- Someone who works a 10AM - 6PM 4-5 days a week or a comparable set, predictable schedule. Overnights shifts can work too
- if you have a pet, work from home, or have a non-scheduled/unpredictable job please keep searching, we would not be a good match.
Current roommates are clean and respectful. No pets are allowed but smoking is okay outside in the back patio
