Environmental friendly

Environmental friendly co-housing is a wonderful idea but if this is the price for living green ($300,000+ for a 2 bedroom 1100Sf apt)) I'm afraid it will price out everyone but the high middle/upper class. If you fill your community with busy professionals who is going to be around to work the farm, the land and do the maintenance that is required for a system like this to work properly? Isn't there a better way to go about this?

New-built cohousing is rarely "affordable" without subsidies

Dear Want2beGreen,

As I was quoted in the piece, co-housing prices vary widely by geography, but also by community. And the ones that are more sustainable also cost more to buy into.

The only way that new-built, high-quality green homes are being offered at below market rates is when there are subsidies.

Some cohousing communities have incorporated a wide variety of affordability strategies which are documented on the Cohousing Website should you be interested in learning more.

Key challenges for creating affordable, market-rate homes (even if done with minimal profits) are the costs of:

  1. the initial property
  2. design
  3. entitlement
  4. infrastructure

With cohousing, we must add more cost to pay for the shared common spaces. For highly green cohousing, we must add even more cost for some of the various sustainability features.

You can get all of this below market rates if you can qualify and are lucky enough to win the lottery for a subsidized cohousing home. These are available today in many parts of the country - and more are becoming available all the time... if not in your area now, then perhaps in the future as we continue our march toward creating a better world, one neighborhood at a time.

I think this idea is

I think this idea is amazing. I hope that it starts a huge trend across the country. Unfortunately though the prices are out of reach for many people, including myself as I'm only in my 20's and rent is bad enough. But this gives hope for the future and I would LOVE to live somewhere like this, seems like a great place to raise a family too.

This is why projects like

This is why projects like Brook Farm failed in the 1800's. Busy educated professionals wanted to discuss the possiblilities of communal living more than doing the labor. I have good friends at Cambridge co-housing and Island co-housing. Everything was fine in the beginning, and then there were problems, and legal issues, with swapping chores, equitable workplans, and people not paying common fees and not contributing labor. I almost bought into this idea twice, and still haven't decided whether or not it is a sustainable idea. All signs point to no, even though my heart says yes. I live in a condo now, with 90 units around a farm, pond and 60 acres of open land, and we have the whole plan worked out better than co-housing (but without the co-housing title). Everyone is happy with their smaller than average units, and we all contribute less waste, carbon,etc than the average home in Southern NH. No legal problems, and no fee assessments in 25 years of living here. Unit owners volunteer in the office, do landscaping, accounting, work the community garden, clean the pool, mow the lawns. I'm going to stay here until I see the co-housing start to work better than what I have now.

How green is New Hampshire, really?

I never see truly modern homes, i.e., rectangular and filled with glass offered in New Hampshire. Traditional and stick built dominates everywhere. Technology certainly offers all of the alternatives possible, and New Hampshire claims to encourage truly modern design for homes. But where are the examples - beyond the traditional hipped roof, warren-like, fossil fuel consumers? Where? P.S. DIY examples would even be better?

And ...if you are someone interested in cohousing, find a group near you and, if you like the people in the group, start working with them. There are many strategies to make cohousing mixed income, but it will only be upper middle income folks living there if they are the only ones who come to meetings and get the projects going.
