What we're about

This is a group for people interested in living a more healthy and sustainable lifestyle through cohousing, a type of intentional, collaborative housing in which residents actively participate in the design and operation of their neighborhoods.

A group of people developing Fair Oaks EcoHousing in Fair Oaks, California, we are empty nesters, singles (both juniors and seniors), and families. We are developing an intergenerational eco-friendly cohousing community, and seeking new members to join our community to fill the 30 available housholds. We are working with award-winning architect Chuck Durrett of McCamant & Durrett Architects and Katie McCamant of CoHousing Solutions. Our Vision is to create an inclusive, earth-friendly community that fosters supportive relationships based on respect, cooperation, and fun. We call ourselves both EcoHousing and CoHousing.

Come and join us to learn more!

Introduction to Fair Oaks EcoHousing

Fair Oaks Coffee House & Deli

Fair Oaks EcoHousing is a neighborhood of 30 homes on 3.7 acres in Fair Oaks, CA, 18 miles east of downtown Sacramento. Come see the site and our architectural plans, and meet members at an upcoming cohousing informational meeting. Kids are welcome. Act now! Fair Oaks EcoHousing has only a few homes left. If you are interested, please come to the informational meeting and site tour. Other homes do become available on occasion. If you like what you hear at the meeting, please join our interest list to be notified of new availability.  To attend the Introduction to Fair Oaks Ecohousing, meet at 10:30 am at the Fair Oaks Coffeehouse in Fair Oaks Village, at 10223 Fair Oaks Blvd, at the intersection with Park Drive. Look for us on the side of the Coffeehouse, in the patio area or in the building at the back. We will introduce you to the project and then we can carpool to the site, where we will be able to overlook the construction of our new community. The event will last about an hour and a half, with an optional lunch afterwards at the Siam Patio Restaurant or the Smokey Oaks Tavern. If you can't make it Sunday, the next meeting is Saturday, February 9 at 10:30.

EcoHousing discussion & FairOaks EcoHousing site tour

Fair Oaks Coffee House & Deli

Learn about greater Sacramento's second cohousing project, which is being developed in Fair Oaks (18 miles east of downtown Sacramento) on a lovely piece of land close to the American River Parkway and to Fair Oaks Village. The project will include 30 homes, a common house, and many other shared amenities. Fair Oaks EcoHousing's design will be similar to Nevada City Cohousing. We meet at 10:30 am at the Fair Oaks Coffeehouse in Fair Oaks Village, located at 10223 Fair Oaks Blvd, at the intersection with Park Drive. There will be discussion about cohousing and our cohousing project in particular followed by a tour of the site where we are building our cohousing community. There will be an optional lunch afterwards at either Smokey Oaks Tavern right next door to the site, or Siam Patio just down the street. We can carpool to the site. The tour will be led by future residents of Fair Oaks EcoHousing. Learn more at www.FairOaksEcoHousing.org (http://www.fairoaksecohousing.org). Look for cohousing buttons, banners, signs, or a bunch of enthusiastic people looking for new neighbors to join them in co-creating their future homes. We meet in the patio area to the left of the coffee house, or in a building just behind the patio.
