about using the correct light bulbs or flooring, but
actually understanding what we're doing and why
it makes sense. Our strengths lie in our knowledge
of the science of building, our meticulous planning
and organization, and our high quality custom
woodworking and cabinetry. Having built everything
from ski chalets and residential homes to agricultural

Making decisions in a group can be challenging.
A compassionate, skilled facilitator makes all the
difference, holding a safe space in which participants
feel emboldened to speak their truth; in which active
listening builds community and connection while
embracing diverse views; and from which emerge
satisfying solutions that integrate the varied needs
of all participants. Over 25 years as a consulting
cohousing architect, I have applied these skills to
participatory design workshops, through which
future neighbors work together to define their
visions and design their communities. These same
facilitation principles are valuable to any group
(non-profit, business, municipal, etc.) engaging in
decision-making or seeking greater understanding
between members.
