Cohousing in Canada
The building features individual residential units of about 1,000 sq. ft., complete with kitchen and dining room, along with a variety of shared spaces such as two balconies, gathering/work area, an art studio, bicycle storage and a spare bedroom where overnight guests can stay.
The plan is to also offer car sharing. “Living together you live with less in terms of what you’re consuming, what you’re purchasing. Rather than having eight different wheel barrows, we’ll have one.”
“It’s important to all of us here to live lightly on the Earth.”
Members have already gathered numerous times to work on the building’s design, as well to share meals, along with trips together to check out other cohousing communities throughout North America.
