“Intellectual” “Hype House”

“Hype House” is zoomer terminology for what amounts to luxury communal living. A super nice place is rented and the participants chip in for maid service, meal prep, laundry, etc.

Beyond these amenities, it’s also a way for like-minded individuals to cohabitate. Ideally this ends up being a space for the cross-pollination of ideas and event-hosting.

My lease is up in a couple months so I’ve started poking around the Bay Area. There’s of couple super nice homes like this, which works out to $2k / bedroom. Not a little, but less than I pay now…

Eventually I’d love to do the rural version of building a community, but I think this is a much easier first step.
