We are proud of our wonderful Development Consultant, Kathryn McCamant, of CoHousing Solutions. She brings the depth and diversity of her experience as an architect, developer, and cohousing resident to her clients. She has provided guidance and a wealth of information to help us create Fair Oaks EcoHousing. She, along with architect Charles Durrett, pioneered the development of cohousing in North America, and she has helped create dozens of successful, award-winning communities. Kathryn and Charles wrote the book that introduced cohousing to North America, updated now as Creating Cohousing: Building Sustainable Communities. Her newest venture involves training passionate cohousing entrepreneurs through the year-long 500 Communities Program.

She has helped us navigate numerous obstacles as we journeyed from an idea to a project under construction. Founder Marty Maskall says: “I can’t imagine trying to develop cohousing without Katie’s wisdom. I’m sure it would have taken much longer, and we might not have succeeded at all.”

Kathryn walks the talk, and has lived in cohousing for most of the past twenty-five years. She developed  Nevada City Cohousing in 2006 and has called that community home ever since. She believes that we need more sustainable communities with strong social connections, and she has dedicated her life to making that happen. We are profoundly grateful for her expert guidance. Learn more at www.CoHousing-Solutions.com.
