Great News: We have an accepted offer on 4.75 acres in Marysville, WA. We expect to settle in August, 2018. Zoning is R4.5 so we should be able to build at least 21 units. We will ask for more with an intention of building a mix of detached homes, cottages, duplexes and townhouses. Dean Smith and Jennie Lindberg have put up the funds to make the down payment. As soon as we settle, we will announce the location of the property and have a big "open house."

There is a house on the property that we expect to be able to rent to cover the mortgage payments until we are ready to build. We are actively seeking more members who are interested in investing in shares in our LLC. Get in now and participate in the planning. Reserve your home now.

Faced with the triple-storm of Fossil Fuel depletion, climate change and the accompanying economic chaos, many people are searching for a simpler, saner way of living. We will need to travel less, share more, look out for each other and eat locally. This is a radical change of live style for most Americans.

Cohousing is an intentional community of private homes clustered around shared space. PG Cohousing will be located in northern Snohomish County, WA . It will be an suburban project, resembling an village within a town. The exact design will be determined by those choosing to live there. Each home will have traditional amenities, including a private kitchen, dining and living space, bedrooms, hobby room, etc. Households have independent incomes and private lives, but neighbors collaboratively plan and manage community activities and shared spaces.

The name, PG Cohousing, is a placeholder. The actual name of the project will be chosen by the core group that choses to join us.

The legal structure of PG Cohousing will be either a Housing Cooperative or a Home Owners Association. Other financial models are also possible.

Community activities will include regularly-scheduled optional shared meals, meetings, and workdays. Neighbors gather for parties, games, movies, or other events. Cohousing makes it easy to form clubs, organize child and elder care, and carpool.
