Room

Depending on the location, there could be up to 14 people staying on the property. It can sound overwhelming on paper, but we have developed an easy system and codebook which eliminates a lot of the stress you could encounter with other living arrangements.
Yes, there are two single rooms available at T1. All of the other rooms available would have only one roommate. A single is great if you are looking for community, but you like to have time to yourself at the end of the day.
If you do not choose the single room option, you will share a room with one other person. There is less stress in staying at the T-Home because every T-Homie is interviewed and we try to pair roomates for a high success rate.
We have T-homies from all over the world. You can expect that the culture of the house will be very diverse and almost every one in the house is coming for BSSM or has gone through BSSM.

Food

Rent

Rent is paid online though a secure payment portal. You will need an american bank account to use this system. If you are international and do not have one, we can work something out.
