Place to Stay in Durham, NC

Brief Description:

Room in a home with zero wireless technology and only incandescent bulbs.

Shielded with Y-shield paint, aluminum screens in window and metal blinds.

Kitchen and living room privileges.

Electrosensitive home owner lives in the house and teaches classical guitar lessons in a room dedicated as her teaching studio.

Length of Stay Limits:

Minimum of 2 nights (or one night and a $20 cleaning fee)

Maximum of 3 months

Room and Amenities Description:


Your shielded and furnished room is on the 2nd floor in the home of a woman with Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Syndrome (EHS). So, there is absolutely nothing wireless in the home.

Grounded Y-Shield paint shields the walls and door of your room from outside RF. Metal screens and metal blinds shield the windows. The floor is shielded with Y-Shield paint on the ceiling in the room below you. When measuring RFs with Cornet Electrosmog Meter (up to 8 GHz range), the room usually does not get above .0006 mW/m2, and .0154 V/M, and is usually lower.

Your bed is a futon with no metal springs, organic cotton pillow and sheets. The bed frame is wooden.

Only incandescent lights are used in the home, and there are no electronics plugged in when not in use.

Electricity to the upstairs is shut off at bedtime by whomever is last into bed - earlier if you’d like. The room is quite bright during the day, so you may turn off the electric during the day if you want to. The upstairs circuit breakers are usually off day and night when there is nobody renting the room, so no need to have electric up there if you don’t want it.

Towels and bedding are provided.

Internet Access:

An ethernet cable runs up to your room for your computer. Please bring a thunderbolt/ethernet cable adaptor If your computer only has a thunderbolt port. Be certain that your computer’s Bluetooth and wireless are both turned off at all times.

If you don’t have a computer and need to get online, there is an older laptop here, with a separate wired keyboard and wired mouse, that we can put in your room. FYI, the computer is too old to support the current Skype. But you could go online to do emailing and information searches.
