Welcome to the Shedders home page.
This site is receiving a lot of visitors this week (over 2000 hits at last count), as a result of ABC Radio National’s By Design show.
The attention isn’t a surprise. Almost everyone we talk to is interested in our story. There is a hunger for community out there, as well as a concern about life in the traditional retirement village. Our initiative suggests an alternative way, as well as insights into the struggles and triumphs that you could expect on your own journey.
The ABC broadcast did a great job of exploring the design of the house, the support we’re able to provide for each other, and some of the elements of day to day life in our community.
I’ve written a book, called Shedders, soon available as an e-book. You can sample it on this website. Let me know if you’d like to be notified when the book is published.
Shedders is our story. What is yours? What interests you? What concerns you? What steps have you taken? What design would work for you? Would you live in the country? Would you share your retirement with other people in this way?
We’d love to hear from you. You can comment here on the blog or write me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
