Fractal House

Visiting Us

Getting Here:

  • When using a GPS: Note that our street can be reached directly from Lake Street. Some GPS directions are unnecessarily complicated.
  • Parking is available on the street. Please do not park in front of the garden on the right side of the house, per neighbor’s request.
  • We are transit-accessible; ask for details.
  • Bikes can be stored in the garage; ask upon arrival.
  • If the meeple “welcome” flag is on the door, you can come in without knocking.
  • We do not have a doorbell. Please knock or send us a text or call; ideally, both.

Accessibility Notes:

  • Note to the mobility impaired: There are four steps up to the front door of the house. If you would like a reserved parking spot in the driveway, let us know, and we'll put out a barrel marker.
  • Dander allergy sufferers: Rejoice! The house has no pets.
  • Food allergy sufferers: This house uses gluten, citrus, peanuts, and peanut butter. We can often provide food that is gluten or nut-free, but we cannot prevent traces. If you have a food allergy, please let us know.
  • Children are welcome, but the house is *not* childproofed.

The Environment We Hope to Create:

  • Recognizing the humanity in all people, we celebrate complex identities and promote space for everyone to grow.
  • We strive for an environment that welcomes people regardless of their neurotype.
  • Respect people’s space.
    • Individuals who live here may want or need time alone.
  • We practice physical and conversational consent.
    • Anyone can initiate a pause or break in a conversation at any time.
    • Here are some words that can help do this:
      • “Red”: Please stop this conversation
      • “Yellow”: Pause this conversation
    • We respect that taking a break from a difficult conversation is essential to the well-being of all participants.
    • Ask before touching someone whom you do not have an established touching relationship with.
  • Anything not labeled in the kitchen you are welcome to enjoy. Please let us know if something runs out.
  • Ask for permission before entering someone’s bedroom.
  • We apply the same toplessness norms regardless of gender: Shirts are not required. (This generally only matters in the summer; we don’t keep the house warm enough in the winter.)
  • As a general rule, we don’t keep or use recreational drugs, tobacco, or alcohol in the house. If this presents a hardship, please talk with us first.
  • We keep a scent reduced household. Please avoid smoke or heavy perfume.
  • Please don’t bring pets without asking first.
  • As it turns out, everyone who lives here sits to use the toilet.
  • Find the wi-fi password posted next to the router in the game room (or ask).

  • If we offer you crash space, we expect that you will be able to entertain and take care of yourself for much of the time you are here.
  • In the course of our day-to-day life, we may be seen naked or using the restroom with the door open.
  • This house hosts different sleep schedules. Moderate levels of noise may occur at any hour.
