I’ve been with Treehouse Village since the get-go, and there aren’t many questions about it that surprise me anymore. “Is it for introverts?”, “Is it a cult?”, “Do you share bathrooms?”. I don’t mind answering even the strangest questions, as I appreciate curiosity. While cohousing has been successful in other parts of the world, including...
In a cohousing community like Treehouse Village Ecohousing, I expect that opportunities to go to the beach will arise naturally. Every sunny weekend, I imagine there will be a friend or neighbour who says, “We’re off to the beach, wanna come?”
I think I've finally found the solution to my rural versus urban quandary in Treehouse Village Ecohousing. Bridgewater offers the amenities which I usually associate with urban living in addition to the benefits of a more rural lifestyle, and when you add cohousing into the mix, it covers all bases!
I really like helping with chores and love to carry laundry and lunch boxes and groceries in from the car. The only time I got carried away was when Shelley asked me to carry in three blocks of cheese, one at a time.
Annie and Bella have different opinions about fun and food, but they agree on one thing - life with Caitlin, David and Alfie is never dull!
Find out how Buddy came to the Parry household, and where Blackberry once found a biscuit - you'll be surprised!
Once I was allowed to go in the yard more often, there was no going back. It was much better than the occasional cat grass plant I had before and the other couple of plants in the living room that I liked to rub against or play with. There was even a plum tree to climb!
I am a 16 year old cat, long, lanky, and orange, with the beginnings of grey showing around my ears and whiskers. I have lived in many places in my long life, all (except for the very first bit, which I don’t remember very well) with my family of humans. The story I’m going to tell you is from my time on the boat.
If you'd told me in 2016, while I was building my Tiny House, that in 2020 I'd have put down my life savings on a deposit for a home in a town I'd only been to twice, that was projected to cost more money than I'd earned in my entire life, I'd have laughed, then asked you what you were smoking. What changed? For starters, Tiny living didn't quite pan out how I'd imagined. More importantly, I discovered cohousing.
One of the attractive aspects of Bridgewater will be being able to use my bike as a means of transportation. There are bike trails in town which link many important residential, recreational, and business areas and provide cycling routes to other communities. Many, if not all of our community members are dedicated cyclists.
