$165/week30 year old female

Hey! Need a new housemate? Would you like a 31yo musician / vocal coach / artist who is financially responsible, friendly, playful, very clean & considerate, and considers good communication a priority? Want to maybe build something beautiful together, dance in the kitchen and support & celebrate each other? Read on!⁣ I generally go by my surname, call me Tilley! (she/her) I’m originally from here, just moved back from Melbourne. At this stage I’ll be staying in Hobart til about Feb, possibly longer, we’ll see. The house I'm looking for will have: Decent sunlight, decent insulation/heating, somewhere off street for me to secure my small motorbike (this can be shed or just a side path or backyard). If the room included BIR, bed, desk, or any other furniture that’d be super helpful, but not essential. I just need enough space for a bed, some storage, some rolling-on-the-floor space, and a desk - or, if the house has a shared office space I could use, with good speakers, that’d be awesome! I’m working from home teaching voice via video call at the moment, only about 5-15hrs a week. Hoping to live with at least 2 others, who are not all male. Hoping to be less than 10min walk away from PT. Keen to continue living without much TV, (Netflix is ok, just not heaps of commercial TV/sports/reality TV).⁣ ⁣ My desired home vibe: Clean, communicative, kind, collaborative, caring, compassionate... and maybe this time a little bit communal? (I've sampled the household-dinners-together vibe at friends' places recently and decided I'm super into it, not essential though).⁣ Love a social house with friends coming over for activities, dinners & movie nights, but not a "party house" (occasional parties are fine! Just not people over getting smashed every weekend.) My home is my sanctuary and I love my alone time and downtime but also, being connected to others is what makes me feel alive.⁣ I’d be up for trips to nature especially, having just moved back from 5 years in Melbourne! But this isn’t essential - I know everyone has their own busy lives, just saying I’m up for joining up for fun times if that’s your vibe. ⁣ More about me: Queer, left-leaning politics, intersectional feminism, currently learning about what it means to be antiracist. Friendly, silly/a total dork, love art/music, real-life philosophy & learning about people & psychology.⁣ I'm always singing or listening to music but happy to be asked to be quiet when needed. Usual hours: in bed by 12ish and up around 8am, though it varies. Keen to go on longterm lease. Been renting since age 17, never had bond withheld, never had issues paying rent or bills.⁣ I do eat meat, although I am keen to learn more vego recipes/work towards being vego at home. Don't care what you eat, just don't cook fish in the microwave plz (ew).⁣ I’m happy to help out in the garden (limited experience / knowledge but can follow instructions!) and with watering houseplants (v sad I had to leave my green babies back in Melbs). ⁣ We are hopefully all:⁣ - Capable of honest, open and clear communication like adults... when something is bothering you you can bring it up and we can negotiate any issues in a collaborative way... no passive aggressive notes or silent treatment. Setting boundaries verbally in a timely manner is cool.⁣ - Considerate, clean. Do our share, wiping surfaces after cooking/eating and doing dishes usually straight after eating, etc - Environmentally and energy usage conscious (tending to put some layers on first), but also not stingy, ok with putting on the heating when it’s cold.⁣ - Careful with security (diligent with locking doors & windows when leaving).⁣ - Keen to know our neighbours & feel connected to community.⁣ - Not big drinkers or heavy partiers.⁣ - Not working nights and needing to sleep all day (as I will often be making/playing music in the daytime).⁣ Bonus points if the home has a piano and a bath! Bonus points for any creative types!⁣ If you’d describe yourself as a “balanced” person, who doesn’t over-identify with a particular subculture but has varied interests, this might be a good match.⁣ ⁣ Final note: Sadly incense, sage, palo santo etc all make me quite ill, so you’d need to be ok with not using these. If this sounds like a good match, let me know when I can check out the place and meet everyone! At the moment I’m in my 14 days of quarantine after returning from Melbourne, so up for video call interview / house tours, and can come check it out after the 22nd. I’d be available to move in anytime after that. Cheers :)

$200/week49 year old male

Hi, I'm looking for a share house, not too far out of the city, no further than Glenorchy to the north or South Hobart to the south. Please note that due to pandemic I am currently unemployed. My background is in digital marketing and web development, however due to my current employment status I've taken the time to start a product and food photography business specialising in Tasmanian products and produce. I'm looking for a house that either has a large enough bedroom to accommodate a large desk or a spare room that can be used as an office (possible studio) which I would be happy to pay extra for. I also have 2 sons, aged 11 & 13 who currently visit me for a weekend every fortnight and who I have for half the school holidays. I would need a room that has space for an extra bed (I have a camp bed that I can use) or again, an extra room would be ideal and I would gladly pay extra for that. I'm a young 50 year old, a bit of a geek who loves movies and streaming TV shows, photography, exploring what Hobart has to offer (I moved here about 3 years ago) through its arts and culture and pub and restaurant scene. I enjoy a nice white wine or IPA and have a limited cooking repertoire but that does include my "world-famous grilled chicken salad" so it basically balances out ;) I would like to broaden my cooking menu but for that I'd prefer to cook for housemates rather than just myself. I'm looking for a nice room in a nice house with nice people. I'm not overly fussy when it comes to size but I do have a computer so the room would at least need to have a desk or be big enough to have one. I'd prefer an unfurnished room with BIR as I have my own bed and drawers and desk. I'm a friendly but generally quiet person and very tidy and happy to do my part to keep a house clean but otherwise I keep to myself or go out.
