Cohousing Development

Welcome to Cohousing Texas

What is Cohousing?
Cohousing is an intentional community of private homes clustered around shared space. Each attached or single family home has traditional amenities, including a private kitchen. Shared spaces typically feature a common house, which may include a large kitchen and dining area, laundry, and recreational spaces. Shared outdoor space may include parking, walkways, open space, and gardens. Neighbors also share resources like tools and lawnmowers.

Cohousing


Households have independent incomes and private lives, but neighbors collaboratively plan and manage community activities and shared spaces. The legal structure is typically an HOA, Condo Association, or Housing Cooperative. Community activities feature regularly-scheduled shared meals, meetings, and workdays. Neighbors gather for parties, games, movies, or other events. Cohousing makes it easy to form clubs, organize child and elder care, and carpool.





Senior Cohousing
Active adult communities that promote a proactive, meaningful and mindful life.

Cohousing communities are typically 20-25 smaller private or attached homes clustered around a larger common house which becomes the social center of a community, with a large dining room and kitchen, lounge, guest rooms, workshop, craft room, theater, library, recreational facilities, even a pool...you name it, you design it. Communities usually serve optional group meals in the common house at least three or four times a week.

Senior Cohousing Senior cohousing modifies the tried and true cohousing model to create physical and social environments in which we can flourish as we get older. To promote a long and healthy life residents proactively design their community to support aging in place and co-care for each other. The grounds and buildings incorporate universal design. The common house includes a caregiver suite for future contingencies. The community bylaws are designed to meet the specific needs of our retirement years.

Senior cohousing offers a feeling of well being, both physically and financially. Having a close knit community with people who care about you and your well-being around day and night provides a secure environment. Shared resources allow you to share costs of routine maintenance and upkeep, utilities, food co-ops, recreational facilities…..again, you name it.

Community Approach
Community is the cornerstone of any cohousing community. Building true community takes effort and self-examination and... a guide to help you through the process. What is important is creating a community of caring, like-minded people whom you can connect with in the second half of life.

The active participation of residents, from the earliest planning stages through construction, is the first - and possibly the most important - component of building a loving and supportive community.
