I am renting a room in an up-and-coming house close to downtown Durham. The house is charming but a work in progress, the price reflects the work needed to be done. If you're adventurous and on a budget it will be a perfect place for you. The room can fit 2 people, if you will be interested in renting a room for one which is less furnished ( located on the first floor) and only has a twin mattress, please, let me know and i make you a discount.

The space

The space is definitely unique in terms that it still has a lot of things to be finished. Please, do not expect the regular kitchen area. At the moment I have a hot plate, mini fridge and salvaged cabinets from the old kitchen. I am constantly working on improvements, thus by the time you book with me you may will have many things that function just as normal house. However, the price will be also different. As of now it is a budget place for a budget price. For someone who wants his basic needs met and not for a big cooking Chef.
One of my bathrooms is also very old (impossible to make it look white even with the bleach) but it is functioning. The second bathroom shall be finished within a week. I ask to keep common area clean. This is my main request. No wet towels and no grease on the hot plate.
Because it is a work in progress there maybe a lot of things that have missed my eye. If you see a nail or something that is bothering you please, do not hesitate to let me know ASAP.

Guest access

There is a common area where everyone can socialize. A big table to eat and a small couch.

Interaction with guests

I am pretty friendly, but indeed tough about keeping everything clean. I am also often away traveling. Thus you will have plenty of privacy time.

Olga's place was really convenient. I was comfortable even though some remodeling work remains. The bathroom was nice.

Olga and the other residents are great and very helpful. Place was in the process of having some work done on it but wasn't a big deal and is good for the price.
