Getting-It-Built Workshop in Truckee, CA

This workshop is led by Katie McCamant (CoHousing Solutions) and Charles "Chuck" Durrett (McCamant & Durrett Architects.) Katie and Chuck are the nation’s experts on cohousing and have either designed/developed or consulted on over fifty cohousing communities. They introduced cohousing to North America with their book (in its second edition), “Creating Cohousing: Building Sustainable Communities.” This workshop shares best practices and lessons learned throughout their 30 years of experience, while also recognizing each community is unique and each group needs to decide what approach makes the most sense for its specific location and situation. More cohousing communities have been started by the Getting-It-Built Workshop than by any other method in North America.
