New to cohousing?

Cohousing started in Denmark in the 60s and is a model that has spread throughout the world. Cohousing communities are similar in key intentional ways: ample common spaces surrounded by private homes.

Daybreak's homes are connected by an outside walkway that lets us interact easily and faces our majestic courtyard maple tree

Daybreak’s campus is two-thirds of an acre centered around a fifty-year-old silver maple which serves as the community’s anchor. 

Our complex consists of four multi-story buildings, three with residential units, and one large Common House with four residential units on top—all with maximum solar exposure. The condominium units are 1 to 3 bedrooms and range from 650 to 1,200 square feet. A circular lawn, gardens and children’s play area fills the central courtyard. Gardens and street trees on the east, south and west invite interaction with the neighborhood.

I want to be part of something larger than myself with people who are environmentally and socially concerned, who also aspire to be part of something larger than themselves.
