A group in Bozeman is trying to design a place to live with homes on shared land and the expectation that neighbors interact — and they’re gaining ground.

Bozeman Cohousing formed last April with the plan to build standalone houses close together around shared spaces like a garden, a community house with room to cook and dine together and potentially a workshop.

“Cohousing is this balance between privacy and community that seems to make a lot of sense for a lot of people,” said Mark Owkes, a Bozeman Cohousing founder. “It’s designed to encourage interactions between neighbors.”
