As usual, it has been quite some time since I posted an update to this blog. Well, one reason is that there has been a lot going on with the development of Echo Hills Cottages. Since my last post we completed the 4th and 5th house, completed putting together an orientation workshop for Nurturing a Cooperative Culture, and finished our long overdue website for Echo Hills Cottages.
Hopefully, I’ll follow up with a post with more details later but, for now, here is a snapshot of the last three houses that we completed.
Laurie and I moved into 2 Wellspring Ln in February of last year. which is 1470 sq. ft. and includes a studio apartment in the lower level.
John moved into 5 Wellspring in August, which is 1300 sq. ft. and includes a workshop in his lower level
Shealy moved into 10 Wellspring in December, which is 1000 sq. ft. and is divided with living area on upper level and sleeping on lower level – and then added a solar system that is estimated to supply over 90% of her power!
We also just staked the location for next house which will be 900 sq. ft., again divided with living area on upper level and sleeping on lower. I hope to break ground the beginning of August, with completion in spring. This house will be available to lease with the option to purchase.
Stay tuned for more updates, and be sure to check out the information and photos on the new website for Echo Hills Cottages.
