How It Works 

Big House Co-Living is more than just a place to live; it aims to redefine what shared living is all about. You invest time early on, so the culture and community is created by you, not us. This is so hard to find in the rental sector. Be part of designing a new way of living.

01.


Live with friends or find new ones

You can come together with people you would like to live with, or we can assist you in finding like-minded people. 

Everything will be worked out before the house is ready to move into. We will guide you through the conversations you need to have in a safe space and help you make choices and decisions about how you will live together. This will ensure that everyone is comfortable. 

You will sign a tenancy agreement and move in, like any other rental property, but you will also be part of a tenant cooperative with decision-making powers over all our properties.

02.


We find the house and do the hard work

We usually find the property and match you to one that suits your needs. We'll do the necessary work to make sure it's a comfortable place to live, which may include some refurbishment. Once we've found a suitable house, we'll rent it to you on favourable terms.

If you are currently renting a property you like, you could ask the landlord if they'd like it to become a Big House Coliving property. We can manage it for them and pay them a long-term rent.

03.


You live in and manage the property like you own it

Have you been on the wrong end of unprofessional letting agents or landlords?

Big House Coliving is the solution you have been looking for.

With us, you can manage the property on a day-to-day basis as if it were your own. While we are always ready to assist you in resolving any issues related to the property or your housemates, the primary responsibility of dealing with such problems lies with you.

What is Big House Co-Living?

  • Redefining Shared Living

Big House Co-Living is not just a living space; it's a revolutionary concept designed to redefine how we think about shared living. Everything is based on the housing cooperative. 

Our approach combines the privacy of traditional housing with the vibrant spirit of community living. Here, you enjoy the comfort of your own private space while being part of a larger, supportive community. 

  • Designed for Connection and Sustainability

Each Big House is crafted with the principles of sustainability at its core—from energy-efficient buildings to shared resources that lower our collective carbon footprint. Our spaces are intentionally designed to foster connections among residents, with ample communal areas that encourage interactions and forge lasting bonds. This is where eco-friendly living meets a supportive community network, creating a lifestyle that's not only good for the planet but also enriching for all its members.

  • Embrace a New Way to Live

Whether you're tired of the isolation typical of modern urban dwellings or seeking a more engaged and sustainable way of life, Big House Co-Living offers an alternative that aligns with your values and aspirations. Join us to experience a new way of living where community and individual well-being go hand in hand.

I really value the team alongside us... creating a cohousing community.

“ Working with ReThink, I often feel that they're about 8 steps ahead of me, knowing what I am thinking and why, and this helps me make sense of things and feel confident in navigating the challenges ahead. I really value the team being alongside us as we plot our way through this journey, and it's such a great resource that the work of creating a cohousing community isn't adding additional lists of to do's and stress to my life, but is getting done. I appreciate that their hard work and tireless effort means I have more time to attend to my life whilst knowing that they are helping to build us a future living in community.”
