welcome home: Ruth HAUS, houston’s newest co-op
i’ve finally settled down in my new co-op. i’m an official Ruth HAUS member and planning to live with my 14 roommates for the next 1+ year. before i share my “new bedroom sneak peak” let me answer some FAQ’s about Ruth HAUS living: HAUS stands for Houston Access to Urban Sustainability, so we’re not just a bunch of like minded hippies living together, we actually have all signed a sustainability pledge to making our lifestyles as green as possible. we have 16 bedrooms (one is rented out as a suit though, so just 15 of us). we have 8 bathrooms, 1 washer/dryer/clothesline. we eat meals together 5 nights a week. and share labor responsibilities like washing dishes and cleaning bathrooms. and so far, so SWEET. i love it here.
