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. :)
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...
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
Room #1 (smaller): the middle 3rd floor
room, Rent for that room is usually $295/month, plus $100/month for utilities,

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.
