Construction is underway and there is new progress every day!
If you've been thinking about joining us, now is the time! We only have 2 homes left - check out the details HERE. We are already on a wait list for our largest and smallest size homes. Once we are sold out, it will likely be several years before a home becomes available.
May 2022 – Our individual homes and the common house are shaping up. Bldg A windows are being installed. Bldg A-E porch trusses are complete. Common house and Bldg C drywall installation is underway. Bldg I firewalls are being installed. Bldg J plumbing and electrical is finalized and HVAC is being installed.

Jones Design Studio, PLLC
Jones Design Studio is an architecture and consulting firm focused on building a beautiful, sustainable, equitable, and resilient future for everyone. Our mission is to make a positive impact on every project, and every person, every single day. We are experts in delivering deeply sustainable community-centric projects.
At CoVision Consulting, we believe that we live better lives when we are together in community. We act as the driving force to turn the vision of a cohousing neighborhood into a reality. With the autonomy of private dwellings and the advantages of community living, cohousing creates richer, more fulfilling lives.
As a community, we've completed an extensive design process of our private homes, our common house and other shared amenities. Stava Building Corporation was selected as our construction contractor and First Oklahoma Bank as our construction lender. On May 2nd a core group of 21 selected their homes. Now we know who our neighbors will be and which lovely homes are still available. In September we broke ground and began construction.
We purchased a 4.8 acre site nestled in a quiet neighborhood at 7141 S. Quincy Ave. We hired our architect team of Jones Design Studio, PLLC and Caddis PC. We completed a series of design workshops, led by our architects, laying out the plans of what our community will actually look like including the site plan and the plans for the individual homes, common house and shared amenities. Kathryn McCamant, national cohousing cofounder joined us for a weekend to help reveal our designs and answer any questions about the cohousing lifestyle.
We began 2018 with a core group of members and a solid plan to research and find a location for our community. Informed by our vision and values we have selected and will soon purchase land and begin the design phase of our community.
In May 2017, we brought national cohousing experts Kathryn McCamant and Charles Durrett to Tulsa for a public presentation on cohousing and a weekend-long “Getting It Built” Workshop. We came away energized, overwhelmed, and fully committed to creating a cohousing community here in Tulsa.
After that, we met regularly, gathered for monthly social events, formed work teams, and hired Cohousing Solutions/Kathryn McCamant to be our development consultant.
An initial community presentation in early 2016 was attended by 75 people. Several more community meetings and an interview on our local PBS radio station, KWGS, stirred up even more interest.
Studying and taking inspiration from The Senior Cohousing Handbook: A Community Approach to Independent Living by Charles Durrett, we launched our first 10-week Study Group 1: Aging Successful/Aging in Place in the fall. Out of it, a core group was formed to move the idea forward. In February, we officially formed Green Country Cohousing, LLC as a vehicle to develop our community.
In April, we visited Oakcreek, Oklahoma’s only cohousing community, in Stillwater. It was love at first sight!
