About Resident Partnership at Radiance Oak

  • The nature of our house puts us and our close friends very much in each other’s lives, and frequently in touch. We’re looking for a housemate and partner who wants to engage in and support our community mission, and who brings their own ideas and creativity.
  • Monthly rent is $1050 month, plus utilities – typically about $400. Shared utilities include PGE, water, trash, High-speed Internet, fire /burglar alarm. We plan to add a hot tub in the near future.
  • The available bedroom is about 18′ x 18” (325 sq. ft.). It features 2 windows, gas heater, and an option for a loft structure that allows for vertical storage (you build).
  • In house washer and dryer, full kitchen, 2 shared bathrooms upstairs, more downstairs, two showers. Guest accommodations for occasional visitors – if you want to put up friends from time to time. There will be 3 residents total with occasional guests. Frequent community activities.
  • Located in the historic Jack London District, 278 4th St., near a lot of shopping, food options, and public transportation. Parking is generally easy. The neighborhood is safe, though vigilance is important.
  • We informally share in small and occasional miscellaneous purchases for the house such as TP and cleaning products.
  • Attendance at our ~2 hour weekly partner meetings (if at all possible) is expected.
  • We share equitably in house maintenance chores, as agreed among the residents. General care and cleanliness of shared areas, putting personal items away, and otherwise being a good housemate. We are open to negotiation around specific agreements, in order to arrive at a working arrangement for everyone.
  • All residents volunteer as core community members of Radiance Oak. We see ourselves as community leaders, and place a high value in maintaining impeccable relationships, with everyone we’re involved with.
  • You should be OK with some amount of outside people being around a few days a week, occasional guests who will stay for a few days to a couple of weeks (these may be your guests), as well as some large gatherings that may go late, and involve electronic or live music. The house can be fairly quiet on many days.
  • We use a defined process to qualify prospective residents. Please contact us to apply, or if you would like further information, at: [email protected] .
