We are eight households of individually constructed homes surrounding a circle "green" within the larger 20+ acre community land. Our common house is a 1200 sq ft facility with laundry, kitchen, bathroom, guest room and office alcove. We are located in rural south Whidbey Island among cedars, meadows, and a creek; stewardship of our land is a community priority.
