Back in 1996 I fell in love with cohousing as an ideal way to have community close to home. My first introduction was to Prairie Sky in Calgary but that did not work out for me. In 2000 I got married again to a great guy who also loves sharing housing. Since Art is American it would be almost 2 years before he could legally work in Canada and we needed to find a way to live inexpensively. We started our lives together by renting a 6 bedroom house in Calgary and finding 5 compatible roommates. That year our housing cost us a total of $167.00 (Cdn) Since then we have had over 200 roommates and have now published a book of advice, tips and stories gleaned from our experiences. Titled: LIVE for Almost FREE It is now available on Amazon as a paperback or Kindle. It can even be rented. If you can’t quite pull off being part of a Cohousing community we find sharing a big house a wonderful alternative. This link will take you to our book. http://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00HGYIC5I/ref=s9_simh_gw_p351_d0_i1?pf_rd_m=A3DWYIK6Y9EEQB&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=130GYEH3D8Q6V99S7G1X&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=1687860322&pf_rd_i=915398 This year we have become involved as core group members of Aldermuir Cohousing on Vancouver Island and hope that our long-time dream of living in a Cohousing community will become a reality by 2016.
