*As of 8/16, we have a unit for sale, available in September. It’s ~ 1000 sq feet, two bedrooms (one large and the other small) a large bathroom with laundry space and a great room with the kitchen partially separated. It’s on the ground floor and one of the smallest units in our community. If interested, call or email us. The price will be $280 to $290,000.

Our loving and vibrant community has been living together for six years. We share meals, conversations, helping hands, babysitting, song circles and the joy of connection. We are tucked into the edge of a ravine, within walking distance of downtown Olympia, but in a lovely older neighborhood.

We are actively seeking new members. We recently completed our Phase II construction project, which expanded us from 11to 18 units. The approximately 50 members will range in age from 1 to 81. Many of the new units are sold, but several beautiful, energy efficient units are still available for sale. Rentals are available periodically.

Our site is on Olympia's West Side, just 1.6 miles from downtown, and 6 blocks from the beloved Westside Olympia food coop. Part of our land is a green belt provided by a deep ravine sculpted by a year-round stream that enters Puget Sound several blocks away. We currently have a large vegetable garden and play areas for the kids. All of our homes surround a center Green where we gather to talk, walk our dogs, ride bikes and scooters, and enjoy the sunshine.

Our legal structure is a condominium with a Steering Board made up of two members from each of the working committees – Building and Grounds, Administration, and Community Life.
