a cottage co-housing community
Evans Oaks is an intentional community of private homes clustered around shared space. Each single family home has traditional amenities, including a private kitchen and small yard area. Our shared spaces will feature a common house, which includes a large kitchen, dining area, recreational spaces, and guest quarters.
We will also have a workshop and garages with personal storage at both ends of the property. Shared outdoor space includes parking, walkways, open space, and gardens. Community members also share resources like tools, books, and recreational equipment. Each household lives independently, but neighbors collaboratively plan and manage community activities and shared spaces.
We are actively recruiting for people to join our community. At present there are nine member households and we are enthusiastically seeking the two more. One cottage being built is the Sunflower design, our largest at two stories, 1430 square feet, two bedroom, and two full baths. You can help decide which other cottage to build. Please refer to the “Plans” section for complete details. We plan to start site improvement during the summer of 2019 with house construction beginning in late summer of 2019 and completion in mid 2020. Current members have funded the purchase of the land and also paid for the planning, architectural work, surveying and establishment of the LLC (Limited Liability Company) that will be the developer of the project. In order to be a full member of the LLC, the eleventh household members need to start the membership process as soon as possible.
