Is coliving for you?
Many people talk about it... fewer act on it.
"Speak to anyone who lives in co-housing and you will find a variety of reasons for their choice. Some hope to place a smaller footprint on the earth. Some hope to experience comfort and companionship in their old age, or a multi-generational table to share a meal at. Some seek affordability. Common to all, however, is the deep-seated memory of a “village”: a desire for community, for a stronger connection to fellow inhabitants of this shared planet."
Many people use the terms coliving and cohousing in similar ways.
Cohousing most often refers to self-contained homes with some common facilities.
Coliving, as we understand it, includes private suites or bedsitting rooms, each with private ensuite bath.
All other rooms are common, including the kitchen. It's one big home.
Some people think not having your own kitchen is a sacrifice. We think it's a benefit.
