What is Cohousing?

Prairie Spruce Commons members and potential members meeting with staff at Floors by Design.

Cohousing is a lifestyle that provides the perfect combination of privacy and community. It is a creative way for people to have beautiful private units and shared common space. Prairie Spruce is a neighbourhood in a unique green building and healthy environment. The physical design encourages both social contact and individual space. Private units contain all the features of conventional homes but owners also share the extensive common facilities such as outside terraces, gardens,  a workshop and a common kitchen and dining area.
