    I am trying once again to find a suitable housemate family to cohabitate with. Our family unit consists if me, my wife, 13 year old daughter and our dog. My wife recieves SSDI and we collectively get EBT. I rarely am employed and try to live simple.

    We dont drink or do drugs (I am in recovery), no 420 either. We are seeking a similar small fam or single parent with a dedicated longterm fixed income. Our goal is to combine resources to get away from being broke ass tennants in another ghetto. I would like to live in a small semi private collective house where we can feel safe. Somewhere rural, wooded or near farms is ideal. Seeing that there are plenty of run down houses owned that could be aquired at auction, i figure why not? If we can collaborate with others who have similar lifestyle as us. We are traditional in ways and radicals in others. My wife wants trad and I want rad yet we meet in the middle. We may consider a house rental as well to test the waters with financial contribution, shared workload and peaceful coexistence.

    With many urban housing markets being gentrified we are considering relocating to Western Mass, NH, Maine, Eastern NY, VT etc. We currently live in New Bedford, Mass.

    My ideal situation would be in a rural setting with a fixer upper house and some land for future outbuildings (yurts, tiny houses, barn, workshops, etc) and to plant some gardens and or have a few animals.

    We are omnivores. I like listening to music, writing poetry, volunteering, traveling and working on nonprofit projects, activism for social justice. I am an anti capitalist but not against drawing a small income some where. My wife has anxiety and smokes tobacco but if in the right environment would thrive. Our daughter is emo and into online gaming, cosplay etc.

    We would like to have some communal chores, meals and shared projects to improve the house. We would like to keep a space open to friends and couchsurfers.

    To be likeminded and able to get along with eachother is imperative.

    I'm looking for the same but for varied reasons sharing a house with other families has had some serious consequences in my history. I dream and am working on getting land somewhere somehow and opening it for people to come on out and build their own dwelling on it. Ideally it would have a big ass farm house on it where people can try the communal thing but I would stay off on the edge of a clearing or in the forest with my yurt. I also want to build separate structures for each of my children. I hope to stay in Maine. Maybe we can unite in the near future.
