A person's home is their castle. But demographic and economic changes have turned our castles into islands. How can we regain the elements of the traditional village – family, cooperation, community and a sense of belonging – within the context of 21st century life?
"Creating Cohousing: Building Sustainable Communities" is an in-depth exploration of a uniquely rewarding type of housing that is perfect for anyone who values their independence and yet longs for more connection with those around them. Written by the award-winning team that wrote the original "cohousing bible" and first brought cohousing to North America, this fully-illustrated manual combines nuts-and-bolts practical considerations and design ideas with extensive case studies of dozens of diverse communities in Europe and North America.
"Creating Cohousing" puts the "neighbor" back into "neighborhood", and is an essential resource for anyone interested in more environmentally and socially sustainable living. Charles Durrett is a principal at McCamant & Durrett in Nevada City, CA, a firm that specializes in affordable cohousing and is designing our community in Spokane, co-authored the groundbreaking "Cohousing: A Contemporary Approach to Housing Ourselves" with Kathryn McCamant (CoHousing Solutions).
