Us:
Diverse household of roommates from all across the world, all between our 20s-30s. 2 Women + 3 Men + 3 Open Rooms = 8 total roommates (when we're full). We're a bunch of professionals who work at various departments and branches of government, in healthcare/education, students and actors. We cook a few times a week, are all pretty much working from home with the pandemic, and we all follow COVID-19 precautions seriously (none of us have gotten sick). The house is very spacious so it usually doesn't feel crowded, even when we're all home (such as during pandemic times). The house vibe is laid back, professional - very chill, drama free, where people are able to hang out with roommates or go about your business. We're all expected to communicate well to keep a clean and comfy home.
