- Greetings, good gentles of the Greater Wild Onion Autonomous Collective -
I have for the last several years shared a house with a good friend, in a rather blended-family sort of way. Due to changes in my personal life, I have decided to move out, leaving her in need of a new roommate or two. We are looking for someone who would not be just a warm body who takes care of their share of rent, utilities & chores, but who would be able and willing to take on some child-care as well. The space I am vacating is a finished basement with a full bath, so whoever comes in will have their own space away from the common area. My roommate and her kids have the upstairs bedrooms. The basement space could accommodate 2 or even 3 people, depending on how much space and privacy they required (it is currently being used by me, my boyfriend and my daughter with reasonable comfort). There are 3 cats (short-haired) and one dog (medium-large). Smoking strictly outside. So as not to waste the time of those who require a high degree of order or calm in their lives, I should mention up front that the environment here is neither tidy nor quiet, and we have a preponderance of alpha females. Although my roommate is not SCAdian herself (yet - there is hope), I think a SCAdian, with our higher tolerance for the unorthodox & out-of-the-mainstream, would be a good fit. Male, female or other - gender is not an issue, and gender issues are not an issue, if the personality and character are right.
The house is located in Batavia (Incipient Shire of Foxvale), just a few blocks from the library (where we are having a demo in honor of The Doomsday Book this Saturday, shameless plug) in a nice old neighborhood just off downtown. Gradeschool and High School are within reasonable walking distance. We are right by the Fox River and the bike path, I-88 is a straight shot south, and the Geneva Metra station is 2 miles away. For the right couple of people, this could be a great opportunity to pay a lot less than you otherwise would to live in a nice town with good schools.
