Alaskans talk benefits of co-housing

KTUU Staff A bold new type of housing inspired from Denmark, has some Alaskans looking to make it a popular staple in Anchorage.

It's called co-housing, and involves people coming together to build a set of units and then some common spaces everyone uses together.

On Saturday, an information session was held in Anchorage to talk about the benefits of the project.

"I think one thing that really differentiates this from condos or single home living is the sense of community, it automatically creates as part of the process," Michael King with Kellar Williams Realty said.

There is already one co-housing project in the state called raven's roost, it was completed late last year with features like a shared cafeteria, a yoga studio and a woodshop.
