At Trillium Hollow Cohousing in Portland, OR,
there is one free-standing house that was custom created from the
hexagonal gym that was part of the original five or six bedroom home
that is now Trillium Hollow's Common House. It's safe to say that it
is the most unusual private residence I've seen in the 60 cohousing
communities I've visited.

I own the unit, but my daughter and her family who lived in it---and
who really loved living in cohousing--had to leave Oregon, so now it
is for sale.  It has three bedrooms, 2 baths and a large loft that
would make a great office or workspace, and since it is hexagonal,
only the two bathrooms are rectangular.  If you are interested in
knowing more about the community, do check out their website (that's
my daughter Amika and my two granddaughters on the home page), and if
you want to know more about the house, please call or email me (off
list). I can send you pictures too.
