My new home takes shape

    While I continue to struggle to get my house ready for selling, I take some comfort in the progress of my new community, Mosaic Commons, both from a personal level and from a construction perspective. One of our many resident geeks set up this webcam in our marketing trailer, and it happens to look at my house (the one on the right). I can now look to the future whenever I'm having doubts.

    As it turns out, one of the General Contractor's folks working on this project had the chance to take some fabulous aerial photos of our site, including this one, where my home is one of the 2 large buildings on the bottom just left of center. This picture also gives you a sense of the 2 neighborhoods, with Camelot Cohousing in the upper right part of the picture, and Mosaic Commons in the middle to lower left. These 2 communities are part of Sawyer Hill Ecovillage in Berlin, MA. We still have units available, so come be my neighbor. :-)

Wow your new house looks wonderful! And I love the concept of the neighborhood. I've never heard of co-housing before but it sounds like a great solution for families today. Be sure to post pictures when your house is done!

Melanie,
Thanks. I'll post pictures as the house progresses. I probably should have included this link to the <a href="http://cohousing.org">Cohousing Association of the United States</a>, for those interested in learning more about Cohousing in general. It's a great concept, particularly in light of today's environmental and energy concerns.
