The Clearing

The Clearing is a household that received its name when a visiting couple said being there was like coming to a “clearing in the woods.”

The Clearing has well established routines. Mealtimes are the central part of the Clearing household life, and household members make it high priority to be present, particularly for the evening meals. Members who are able participate in the household chores of cooking, dishwashing, cleaning, etc.

Presently there are 7 people living at the Clearing.  Everyone is single and has his/her own room. The household has several guest rooms.

The Clearing is an intergenerational household. We have a member in their 30s, a member in their 90s, and various ages in between.

Though the Clearing is an RPF affiliated household, membership in RPF is not an expectation for living at the Clearing. For more info, contact David Hovde at
