PAGOSA SPRINGS, CO - FOR SALE BY OWNER - (ad posted  06-15-2007)  - 3/2 beautiful environmentally safe house for sale in Pagosa Springs, Colorado. High ceilings, hardwood and tile floors, radiant in-floor heat on a slab (no crawl space) Heavenly heat sauna, Jacuzzi tub, tons of upgrades and lots of light. Only natural cleaners are used and no pesticides, incense, perfume, or smoke of any kind. The house was built during a period from 1998 or 1999-2002 by a carpenter who lived here while he built it. Much of the house was not finished until the 4 months before I moved in - June 2002. So on an average I would say its about 6 years old. The carpenter was a single man living here alone and I am a single women living here alone (no pets) so the house looks new. The living/dining room, kitchen and master bed/bath are upstairs. I love to be up high looking at trees and view and sky and can open my windows at night and feel safe inside...but then all of Pagosa is safe...many people leave their doors unlocked!  The house is a 2 story cedar house with empty lots on each side and green belt on one side and all the way in the back for about 1 acre of privacy and another lot you can purchase if you want more land.  Thank you for your interest!  Contact Nancy:

AIKEN, SC - COMMUNITY FORMING  (posted 03 2006 ) AIKEN, SC   ReCreation Health & Wholeness is developing a housing community which will meet the needs of people disabled by CFIDS and Fibromyalgia. Reasonably priced housing will be available to PWCs; their families; personal care givers; mainstream and alternative practitioners and other professionals who are able to provide support and services in the community.  For a number of years, the founders (who have their own disabilities) have owned a Guest House/Retreat in Gloucester, MA which serves to this population.  They purchased land in Aiken, South Carolina and are planning the site.  (For economic reasons, the first phase of the PWC Cohousing project cannot accommodate people with Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS). However, they’ve been inundated with inquiries from MCS folk. Because of this, they’ve decided to offer part or all of one of the South Carolina sites for sale to those who are interested in forming a group to build an MCS-compatible community. This is a 27-acre piece of land adjacent to the Aiken Gopher Tortoise Heritage Preserve.  If some are interested in purchasing the land and building MCS-safe housing, contact us as soon as possible.) www.pwccohousing.org/index.htm          e-mail:  recreation@adelphia.net
