Ames Cohousing is a newly forming intentional community for 5 to 6 residents in Ames, Iowa. Ames is a city of 50,000+ people, about a 30 minute drive north of Des Moines.
We live in two houses with adjacent backyards in a very walkable and pleasant neighborhood. Walk to all of the following in only 10-15 minutes:
- Iowa State University campus
- Various restaurants and coffee shops
- Grocery store
- Post office
- Wells Fargo bank
- Unitarian Universalist church
- Parks and recreational facilities
Our vision is to create a positive living and working environment for activists who are passionate about sustainability and progressive causes. Work exchange opportunities are available, especially for people with skills in software development, graphic design or videography, business management/marketing, or farming.
The first two residents just moved into Ames Cohousing in August and September 2016. Four rooms are still open.
More detailed information and photos will be added to this website soon. Meanwhile, if you’re interested to learn more, please email Eric Stetson (resident). You can also fill out an online application form. We look forward to hearing from you!
