Hi! Our awesome HHR community member is moving out to help his family and be in town- we will miss him!

Jackson, MI address: Leoni Twp

The room is available for a person or an established couple.

Amenities:
a heavy-duty twin loft bed in it (that can be removed if needed).
Shared new washer & dryer
Reverse osmosis system for drinking water (our little dude calls it “yummy water” lol) in the kitchen
solar backup for the fridge and main livingroom
2 shared bathrooms - one upstairs and one downstairs from the main floor. The bathroom upstairs is full with a sink, tub + shower, and working toilet. The downstairs is a half with just a toilet and sink.
Decent-sized living room common space with little work tables, a wrap-around couch, and an old lady potbellied pig (Sophie is older than dirt and keeps to herself lol). Basement area with extra fridge and freezers plus dry storage area, and our own cupboards in the kitchen.
Trash pickup, water, gas, electric, etc (all utilities)
WiFi at a small additional cost

About What We Do And Who We Are:
We are a small Jackson community nonprofit and operate on the property. We are in the country on 5 acres (up Hawkins- 8mins from the east side of Meijer) but close enough to bike, and we are in and out of town all the time doing errands and helping others. We just dug up our huge front yard to start a community garden and will be doing a cleanout and overhaul to the donation barn, building a big donation intake shed up front, and EVENTUALLY building little houses.

We have the old lady pig plus two male big-pig-type young’ns. We were at one point a pet pig and cat sanctuary. We kept the special needs & disabled cats, and have 2 dogs floating between our house and the one in town.

We are an LGBTQ+ family, progressive thinking, politically “no”, multi-racial, disabled (2 with mobility issues), bad-ass, kind, ambitious hard workers that never slow down… we work around our disabilities as best we can. We love music and hanging out as a group. Music is always playing! But we also value our individual privacies and downtime. :)

Our 6-year-old is special needs and quick to temper. We work closely with him, but he can be a lot to handle for newcomers.

Suffice it to say, if you like peace and quiet, this definitely would not be the place for you. But we are also NOT a party house. The only animals here have 4 legs and whiskers or snooties!

What We Are Looking For:
Must be at least an ally, be kind, hard-working, and strong. We are looking for someone that WANTS to be a part of what we do. Is in it for the thrills of helping others, not the glory, and is physically able to help work on the property and housing renovations and chip in for the house chores.

Rules and Expectations:
We will do a background check

No Thieves
No Domestics/violence
No mind-altering substance or “over 21” adult beverage-related offenses
(we are “California Flower” friendly and even consume to help with various ailments, but if you live to blitz, don’t apply please)
No hoarders
NO CIGARETTES! PERIOD!
Limit to ONE pet. (They have to get along with other animals and cannot be destructive.)

We’ve had so many bad roommates- lots- that these rules are strict because we are tired of police being involved.

Rent:
$350/mo + WiFi (We split the cost. Your portion would be $33/mo)

To keep the cost of rent low (most rooms are going for almost double what we are charging!), we are asking for the rest of the rent to be made up in physical help around the property and sanctuary.

NOTE:
Leaving Roommate just gave us notice the other day. He was renovating and left half-done work. We are re-painting the marigold trim, repairing the closet (he cut out part of the wall to fit his dresser in it and left when he had it only dry walled) and we are replacing the flooring (the dirty rug is his- we don’t do carpet 🤣) You are welcome to come look at the room if you are interested. Move in can happen mid-construction if you’d like to help 😊
THE FURNITURE AND APPLIANCES 🚫DO NOT🚫 STAY! Only the loft stays (if you want it) and we have mattresses if you need one/both
