May sublets available at the Lap!

Smooty tells me there's a couple spots at the Lap for the month of May! I've already raved about the house to you, so all that's left is to read. And to know that living with a member of Maple Rabbit sounds just magical. :)

Dear Friends,

Our lovely house, the Lap, is looking for **2** subletters for the month of May! Please spread the word to awesome folks who might be interested...

About us:
We are an established collective house in West Philadelphia (called the Lap), and we're looking for a new housemate. The house is currently five folks, late 20s - early 30s, queer, straight, mature and fun. We really like living together and hanging out, but we also each have our own active lives that keep us busy outside the house. We care about social & economic justice, art, food, Philadelphia histories, playing music and good haircuts. We share food and each cook dinner for the house one night a week. We're not big partiers, but we do like to have people over for cocktails - just as much as we like to hide behind a good book. We come with great references!

About the house:
The Lap has been a collectively-owned house in West Philadelphia since 2001. Our house was recently bought by, and has now become a part of a local land trust, the Life Center Association. As an LCA house, we have some additional responsibilities and benefits, but our house has also retained many of the characteristics and traditions we have developed over the years as a collective group house. As a house member you would also be a member of the LCA, NASCO, and have a voice in decision-making for our house and the LCA as a whole.

We are close to Clark Park, closer to Cedar Park, near numerous other West Philly highlights and on the 34 trolley line. The house is a 3-story Victorian with 5 bedrooms and 2 baths that we've put a lot of work into over the years. Parts of it are brand new and beautiful, and others are charmingly in need of a little attention. We have a very cozy living room, and a stunningly open and beautiful kitchen, complete with industrial 6-burner stove.

The Rooms

Room #2 (larger): the front 3rd floor room. Rent for that room is usually $395/month, plus $100/month for utilities, and $25/week for groceries.
