Compared to residents of standard housing developments, residents of cohousing communities
-- use 50-70% less energy
-- use 49% less water
-- drive about 60% less than their suburban counterparts
-- and their homes are 60% of the carbon foot print of a typical American home.
Can even more savings be achieved? Is cohousing a good fit for the Washington, DC area? How can I get involved in creating a cohousing community?
You can pose these and other questions to the very people who brought cohousing from Denmark to the US in 1986. Kathryn McCamant and Charles Durrett will be presenting on "20 Years of Building Sustainable Communities" and signing copies of the newly published 3rd edition of "Creating Cohousing: Building Sustainable Communities" Thursday, June 16th, 6:30-8:30 p.m. Lots of time for Q&A and discussion.
This is the only book event on the East coast scheduled by the authors for 2011. Don't miss this opportunity!
