North Seattle Co-Op Community House (forming)Seattle , Washington
Posted On 4/30/2012, Last Updated On 4/30/2012
Looking for a place to live?
Want more than just a room for rent?
I am looking to form an urban co-op house in North Seattle and looking for interested people and a house for rent to call home.
Ideally we're combining an intentional community style of living with a co-op framework. We live and support each other under one roof, have regular house meetings to work out any kinks, stay on the same page, and plan out our community house activities.
We don't do everything together though ;p
Everyone has their own space/room and privacy.
If you support and seek out these values
you will feel at home.
- Sustainable living
- A nurturing environment
- An affordable place to call home.
- Located in North Seattle
- Garden space
- Outside work space area
- Shared meals and activities,
as well as cleaning and property maintenance work.
Please check out our informative website for more information.

We are interested in sharing our lives (and the beautiful 20 acres we live on) w/ several others (homeschooling families, single parents welcome) w/ a true passion for awareness, authenticity, sincere personal development, healing, compassion, integrity, invention and responsible, straightforward behavior. By ‘responsible’ we don’t mean unplayful or overly serious, but dependable. One large home on the property where we currently live complete w/ attached greenhouse. All facilities of the home & main spaces to be shared; other facilities, spaces can be constructed, w/ composting toilet and bathhouse priority. Also a large garage/barn w/ an enclosed woodshop area, & a high-ceilinged boathouse that can be converted. 2 Mongolian yurts available on a first-come basis would require insulation, floor & stove. Original owner put 30 years into soil development, compost building; large garden spaces that we are slowly reviving; many thriving herbs & perennials. Small orchard w/ excellent production. Diverse forest frequented by plethora of birds including eagles, ravens, turkeys, geese, hummingbirds – very vibrant with life here! Peace is tangible. Goal is to continue w/ building into a healing, spiritually-focused space for developing connected Soul Tribe. (Lots of great reasons for intentional living; foremost for us is Union w/ Self & Others). Intention is to quickly develop community businesses and food production so all adults can devote themselves to personal, collective & land development. Part-time employment may be required to meet your necessities in meantime; but open to working w/ resonate energies. Ideal respondents would have an RV, bus or desire to live in a traditional yurt, at least initially.

Do you want to walk, bike or bus to beaches, a food co-op, and the heart of a cultural and historic small town? Do you want to live in community of people dedicated to living in harmony with each other and with the earth?
We are a small-town, urban EcoVillage on 7.5 acres in Port Townsend, an historic seaport of 8,500 residents. We have a core group of a 22 active participants: 17 people, including 6 children, live on site now, with other members nearby. After several years laying the groundwork and putting in infrastructure, we ready to grow!
Five of the twelve 4,000 sqare-foot lots for homebuilding are still available for sale, and rental units occasionally open up for new occupants.
Residents share ample common gardens, fields, woods, a large 3,600 square foot shop/art center., and will build a common house once we have more members.
Structured as a Home Owners Association, our members own their own lots and the homes they build on them, and thus have access to mortgages, federal tax deductions and credits.
The lots cost $110,000. To keep the EcoVillage as affordable as possible, we offer some discounts and partial financing with a contract at 3% per year for those who qualify. This does not include the cost of a dwelling.
We offer tours once a month prior to our monthly business meeting on a Sunday afternoons, and can sometimes arrange for a tour on another date. Call us to arrange a visit!
