Short term (2-4 months) room available starting in August.
I'm the homeowner (gen x) and by design, since I moved in I've shared my house with a number of good people - around 4 of us total at a time.

About us: I live on the 2nd floor, along with a rotating cast of 1-2 others, generally staying for about a semester's worth of time, and a third floor resident with their own kitchen and bath who is generally around for a year. A good balance of independence and community, to us, has looked like weekly shared meals, game- and movie nights, joint celebrations for milestones and special days...generally appreciating the fact that others are in the house, and willingly investing some of your energy here. Many nights, of course, we're doing our own thing.

We live low-impact - composting, drying our clothes on the line instead of in the clothes dryer, that sort of thing, so great if you're either on board with that or willing to go along with it. Also, since supplemental heating/cooling is the biggest energy draw, this place works well for people who roll with wider temperature ranges - turning to fans and strategic window-opening in the summer, layering up in the winter (we keep the temperature in the house at 66 fahrenheit/19C when the furnace is on).

Some more details:
The room is furnished and suitable for one person.
No pets for folks on the 2nd floor, sorry (there won't be pets on the 3rd floor either)
The house is in the Morningside neighborhood, on the east side of Pittsburgh.
We're a household of non-smokers (of anything) and are looking for the same.
Rent is $480/month and includes utilities and wifi access.
We've already filled the other rooms so will be looking for someone who fits well with folks here in the fall. That said, if this ad is visible, there's still space!

We've had happy people here of a variety of colors, creeds, and other identities - if you think this is the right place for you, write us an email and introduce yourself! (because we want to know each other here, simple "I'm interested, call me" messages won't get a response).
