Two Acre Wood Cohousing is a community in the traditional cohousing mold. We are generally all politically progressive, environmentally conscious, and interested in learning to live together in a supportive, loving community with lots of room for individual differences. We have no official philosophy.
We moved into our brand-new homes in the summer of 1999. So far only two units have changed hands as of early 2008.
We do have one or two possible rental homes and, sometimes, house sitting opportunities. We will be maintaining a list of people who might be interested in purchasing or renting a unit should one become available. If you would like to be on a notification list for future openings, email your name, email address, and phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Community location is placed at the center of the zip/postal code, city/state, or city/country (not based on street addresses)
