Green Terms Defined: Cohousing

Cohousing is a type of development where residents collaborate together on the design of their own neighborhood. The residents create the spaces that work best for the group.

Harrisonburg Home Plan

Cohousing residents are committed to living as a community together. The physical design of the homes encourages both social contact and individual space.The homes in this type of development are traditional in features, but typically are smaller as the shared space/ community house offers needed expansion opportunities for those rare occasions it is needed for individual families. The exterior spaces of the community are frequently shared by the entire neighborhood, from playgrounds, courtyards, picnic areas to parking. For more information check out this website.
