Common Areas of Cohousing & Ecovillages:
What Affects Affordability?
The common house is not the only common area in a
cooperative housing community.
Other common area are:
1. Community garden. Read more.
2. Parking area which could include an area for minor automobile repairs. Read more.
3. Workshop areas.
4. Pond, creek, or other body of water. This is more practical when land is plentiful and cheap or when the cooperative housing community is actually part of an ecovillage.
5. Play areas for kids
6. Outdoor living areas such as decks, patios, and porches.
7. Walking and open areas
8. Parking for community vehicles such as a community truck or van. Also storage for personal bicycles.
9. Individual storage areas. Read more.
10. A meditation area.
Do you notice that something is missing from the list of common areas?
The swimming pools and recreation areas of most large suburban neighborhoods are rarely important to cooperative housing communities, often because of cost. Yet they may be included in an ecovillage or some cohousing communities.
