These guys live in Vancouver, pay next to nothing for rent and throw epic parties [somewhat NSFW photos]

On yesterday’s episode of Terry Project on CiTR we profiled Vlad and Andrew, two young guys who pay around $360 each a month to live in a big house along the Cambie Street Corridor. And they never paid a damage deposit. How do they pull it off?

Well–you’ll have to listen to the show (which you will want to anyways: it’s pretty interesting).

Andrew says the house is not all about partying. He runs a business out of the space and likes that his dog can run around in the backyard.  Their friends have covered the walls in art and poetry. Actually–most of the time the house is pretty quiet, he tells us.

“It’s a special moment I guess. Every flophouse I’ve lived in it feels like it’s going to be the last but then it’s not, I don’t know.”

Something we couldn’t totally convey on the radio show was just how interesting looking Vlad and Andrew’s house is. Here’s a selection of photos I took while reporting there. Just a warning: one of the photos is a sort of erotic sketch. Not necessarily the sort of thing to look at at work.

The house itself is in a beautiful neighborhood. Right across the street from Queen Elizabeth Park.
