Welcome to Treehouse Village!

We are building Atlantic Canada’s first cohousing neighborhood – a family-friendly, energy-efficient, walkable village at the heart of Nova Scotia’s spectacular South Shore.

Cohousing offers more than just a house, it offers a community. At Treehouse Village you can own your own private home, a space for you and your family to relax and enjoy. You’ll also have access to extensive shared amenities in a large common house and plenty of outdoor space to maximize your lifestyle.

We’re looking for new neighbours! 


We’re building 30 private homes and a shared common house on a 14 acre parcel of land in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia.

Our community has been designed by us – alongside several professional architects and consultants – to encourage social connection, create a strong sense of belonging, and minimize our environmental footprint.

We envision a joyful, environmentally responsible, healthy, multi-age cohousing community in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia.

Treehouse Village Ecohousing


Our community design process is guided by three core values that were established in our group formation.

  • Our planet: Living lightly on the earth
  • Our neighbours: Sharing resources and joy; and welcoming to all
  • Ourselves: Living in a comfortable and healthy home

Treehouse Village offers durable and highly energy efficient housing and village living in a town with lots of major amenities nearby.

The centennial trail borders our 14 acres of forest land, there are public schools and community college within walking or cycling distance, and there are national and provincial parks, and many lakes and beaches a short drive away.

Join us for relaxed, affordable, East Coast living in a small town with big ideas.
