We (Karen Nelson and Gail O'Sullivan) have decided it’s time to move South to Baja Califonia, Mexico and create a home in a warmer climate. Our plans are to sell the house at 311 9th Ave SE Olympia, WA to a Housing Cooperative - if possible.
We are aware that our departure leaves a vacancy in the community that we love. Our intention is for this space to remain a community hub with affordable housing. Our best vision is for it to be bought by a group of people who form a housing cooperative and maintain it together.
We’ve already done considerable work on developing the cooperative and would be happy to pass along our drafts. We’d like to sell it furnished - right down to the wine glasses!
See our "Cooperative" page to check on current progress.
Here's a great presentation on what it takes to launch a successful Co-operative Housing operation:
