Equity Membership

Equity Members are those families who have invested a minimum of $25,000 in the project. There are currently thirty-five Equity Member households. Thirty-four have committed to purchasing a house. Right now, there are two available units under construction and one fully built that is for sale by the current owner. See the site map for details.

Exploring Membership

Exploring Members are those households who have an interest in becoming Equity Members, but are not yet ready to commit. A six-month Exploring Membership costs $250. There is no limit on the number of households who may become Exploring Members. If you're interested in becoming an Exploring Member, read the Equity Member biographies on the “Learn About Us” page to learn a bit about the folks already involved, then click here to access downloadable forms and pertinent information. If you'd like to visit to meet us personally and to check out the property, please attend one of our regular Open Houses, listed in the "Upcoming Events" section of the Home page.


Friends are those who are interested in our cohousing development, but not ready or able to commit their time or money. Friends receive our eNewsletter, and may remain on the mailing list forever. Friends who follow our progress and like what they are seeing may perhaps join us someday! Friends may also attend community meetings to observe, with prior notice and approval.
