We interviewed two groups of people for our Game of Homes segment on sharing housing. The Pokhrels, featured in the story below, told us they couldn't imagine living apart. Joe Hiller, a resident of the Sherwood cooperative house in the University District, said he enjoys communal living.
This week, we have been airing Game of Homes, a series about finding affordable housing in Seattle. For some, like the Pokhrel family, it’s about bunking together. Eleven family members share two apartments on Rainier Avenue in South Seattle.
As Seattle grows – it’s the fastest growing big city – more people will be looking for affordable housing within the city limits. We here at The Record have been documenting how people are figuring out affordable housing in our series, "Game of Homes."
