Common House Progress and First Home

We now have half of the lots (9 of the 18) sold at Elderberry!  We had a visioning meeting in January so watch for our new vision and values to be put on the site as soon as we do a bit of wordsmithing.

We have completed the interior walls in the common house.  This coming Sunday (Jan 27th) we will have a workday at the site from 10-3.  All interested folks are welcome to come!  We are currently working on exterior caulking, finishing up siding and trim, site clean-up, painting (trim and nail heads) and a handful of miscellaneous tasks.  We'll be having pizza delivered for lunch around noon.

We have pricing on our first two homes and it's coming in around $125 per square foot for our "generic" house - right on budget!  The generic house is a very well-built, energy efficient, green home.    Members can upgrade whatever they wish from the generic plans.  The two members who are building first are currently in the process of being pre-approved for their mortgages, and then we'll be ready to break ground!

In addition to all the progress at the site, we continue to have monthly meetings to begin to design how we will live, work and play together.  2013 will be a very exciting year at Elderberry!!
