We’ve been looking for a roommate to move in September 1. Despite our enticing ad on Craigslist, we’ve had trouble finding takers. You think you have what it takes to live with us???
$530 – 1 roommate wanted for awesome house near California Blue Line (Logan Square)
Date: 2011-08-21, 8:23PM CDT
We have a house in Logan Square just off of Logan Blvd & California, 3 blocks from California Blue Line Stop (5 minute walk; 22 minutes via wheelchair). Recently renovated in a beautiful, safe, residential neighborhood.
It’s probably the coolest house you’ll come across in your quest to find a place to live before September 1. And we might be two of the coolest guys you’ll ever meet. There is also a cat living here named Mr. Budget. He doesn’t seem to mind us living with him, and we doubt he’ll object to new roommates moving in. Mr. Budget is pretty tech savvy and he has his own twitter (@mrbudgetisacat).
Disclaimer #1: We’re clean freaks. Like, we actually vacuum the house multiple times a week. You’re expected to put your dirty dishes in the tiny dish washer we have, or else Mr. Budget will shit on your bed.
This amazing house that we speak of is a one-story ranch-style home with 3 bedrooms, two full baths, a nice living room and a chef-friendly kitchen. There’s also a huge basement with a washer and dryer, and one of us is moving down there, so we have two empty bedrooms upstairs. The bedrooms have closets (spacious enough for at least 4 human cadavers), windows, and working light bulbs. The floors are tile and some sort of synthetic composite designed to look like wood, but honestly, it’s not fooling anyone.
Disclaimer #2: We play in a band. But we’re actually pretty decent and we tour a lot. We play dancey indie-rock, so consider that before inquiring about the house. The back 3rd of the basement serves as a practice space. Yes, we practice here several times a week, but we keep the volume at a reasonable level and will work around your schedule. If you’re a musician and/or don’t mind living with musicians, this will be like living in a dream. A god damn dream, we tell ya!
We’re looking for 1 person, guy or girl or something in between, 20s. If you’re into music, movies, good beer, whiskey, books, sci-fi, videogames and all of that other hipster jib jab, have we got a place for you.
We’ve set up a temporary e-mail account that you can reach us at: pond-monkey [@] excite.com. Contact us with some info about yourself and we’ll show you the place. When you’re on your deathbed, you’ll look back on this as the best decision you ever made.
Rent will be $530 + utilities per person, but our parents came to visit a few months ago, and our mom said this place is “priceless.”
