Where in Portland, Oregon could I record vocals (using just myself and my own gear) without annoying anyone?

In the next while, I will be needing to record some singing, preferably somewhere in Portland. I don't need to rent a recording studio or a sound engineer - I have all my own quite portable equipment and all that jazz - I'm just looking for an (ideally) cheap space in which to do it.
I have to do quite a few tracks, over 20. I would ask a friend in a house to use their basement or something, but I don't want to feel too time-pressured and I don't want to put anyone out or drive my friends nuts, since it is quite a lot of tracks. I can't do it in an apartment because I don't want to really annoy the neighbors.
What are my options here? Rent a rehearsal space of some kind? But where? Any other ideas of how to work this? I'm not too concerned about the actual acoustics of the space. I'll futz with making it sound right after I get it recorded (blasphemy, I realize). I just need a space that I won't bother anyone or feel to embarrassed by my own loud singing. I am willing to spend something on it, but I'd like to keep it as cheap as possible.
