Charles Durrett is the American Grandpappy of Co-Housing and he has a passion for senior co-housing.
His book, The Senior Co-Housing Handbook is essential reading.
He sends me his e-mail newsletter and I thought I’d some of it with changingaging readers.
Hard work and patience has finally paid off and the “yellow iron” has officially arrived on the Wolf Creek Lodge cohousing site in Grass Valley, California, in the heart of the Sierra foothills.
The Lodge has overcome the economic downturn, started construction and added additional members since the project was stalled two years ago. The future residents of Wolf Creek don’t want to retire from an active and meaningful life. Rather, they are seeking a balance between independent and community living, and are actively creating a caring and supportive home with those who share their vision of aging. They credit their success to the tight-knit community they have already formed.
For more detailed information on Wolf Creek Lodge, visit their website at http://www.wolfcreeklodge.org/ or call 800-558-3775.
To follow progress on the site, Gray Construction has set up a website for the future residents with construction updates and a web camera with photos. To visit the site, go to: http://www.jameskwilliams.com/gray/wcv/
