Getting involved with this project eventually leads to home ownership in the Lost Lake Cohousing. The process to become a future resident is:
- ask us questions, by email and Facebook Messenger along the way.
- learn about the project by reading this web site and coming to a site tour, potluck or joining a zoom call.
- get curious about cohousing by reading cohousing.ca and check out other communities by getting a tour or reading their websites.
- meet some of the members in this project by reading their bios, chatting with folks at a site tour, or another social event. (You can send us your bio and that way other folks can meet you).
These will lead you will develop a sense of whether this is something you wish to explore further.
In cohousing projects, some people like to join at the start and be part of designing the project while others prefer to join near the end when the design is complete and the final designs and prices are known.
Once you are feeling ready, the next step is to sign up for a design workshop. Paying the fee for the workshop entitles you to participate in design as a community member, and the order in which people pay for their first workshop is also the order in which they select units as a little extra bonus.
At this point, we are accepting equity contributions from new members to support the costs of the architectural and construction plans.
Fees paid for workshops will count as part of your investment, if you decide to proceed.
Our goal is a minimum of 50% of units occupied by families and folks under 60, to create a multi-generational community.
To sign up for one of the workshops, send an e-transfer with the workshop name in the message to email@example.com and we will send you the full details. If e-transfer is not convenient for you, can email us to make other arrangements.
