Looking for an Eco-Friendly Home in a Co-Housing Community

After 11 years of renting with roommates, Karen Heilesen is ready to own a home of her own. Searching in Corvallis and Portland, Oregon, she seeks co-housing with people from all ages and walks of life, shared electricity, energy efficient construction and open communal space for gatherings. Additionally, she'd like a home with a modern kitchen, an open layout and a small yard. Finding all of these things within a $250,000 budget may be a challenge, so she's enlisted the help of realtor Abe Drabkin who specializes in co-housing projects in the Portland area.
