Our Neighborhood

Design Elements

Our community was intentionally designed by The Cohousing Company/ McCamant-Durrett Architects and the future residents to encourage neighborly interaction using sustainable and energy-efficient design practices. The architecture is in the style of “Mother Lode” to reflect the surrounding area. "Green Features" include a photovoltaic system for each home, passive solar heating and cooling, and low toxic building materials. Our homes were built with almost no clear cut lumber (FSC certified). Advanced framing was used which meant 25-40% less lumber was used to build the same square footage and less than half the lumber was used for a typical new house. Our buildings are infused with natural light.
