Mission Statement

We would strive to live together in unity and share resources whenever possible but also try to maintain individualism.

Community Description

We are interested in the concept of cohousing. We are also very interested in the idea of smaller housing or tiny housing but am flexible on those ideas.

We would like to have a variety of individuals from older individuals to couples to families to foreign exchange students.
Have not yet decided on the location or size of the community but we are located near Brooksville at this moment.

Please contact us with any questions we would love to get together with you and discuss your ideas as well and what we could do to move forward.
