In Our Words: 

Sofia Co-op is a beautiful two-story home with 7 bedrooms, 3 porches and a backyard with raised-bed gardens and a chicken coop. Currently, we are 8 adults and 2 children, and our adult ages range from mid twenties to early fifties. We all take turns cooking, cleaning and doing chores. We enjoy several home- cooked, vegetarian meals per week together. Sofia House is a beautiful and dynamic community that strives to be as eco-friendly as possible. Our house is clean and cozy. We want to live with people who are more than just housemates, but rather part of a bigger family.
