Here is the article. As you may have guessed, we heard from several people who were interested and excited about finding a way to make their cohousing dream come true.

Co-housing projects for older Americans, communities of homes on shared land that residents build and operate themselves, are on the rise. The first such development, Glacier Circle in Davis, Calif., opened in 2006. Since then, at least three more have been built — including ElderSpirit in Abingdon, Virginia and ElderGrace in Santa Fe, N.M — and roughly another eight will be under construction by the end of this year, says Charles Durrett, a co-founder of co-housing development company McCamant & Durrett Architects and author of “Creating Cohousing: Building Sustainable Communities.”

Have you ever considered sharing one of the two-bedroom units with a like-minded cohouser? You might co-own or buy and sublet. You may think: Oh, here goes my privacy! But consider this: In cohousing we do not plan to live in just our individual units. We have the wonderful common rooms: kitchen and dining room, sitting room with lovely fireplace, ample terrace in front, and our gardens and green space down by the Creek. We share the Petanque court and the hot tub. So you probably won’t be sitting “on top of each other.”
