When I saw the name of the thread the content was totally not the way my mind went. I typically see people building natural homes with people (socially). And it's kind of a drawback for me, as I'm not a people person.
I guess we know who's in the introvert and who's the extrovert.
Dancing Rabbit is probably one of the most famous. However, there are at least a couple of them in Oregon,.
Lost Valley Educational Center https://lostvalley.org/ is one of the largest on the west coast.
I agree that the building can be social, but afterwards, what? TO do it cheaply, sustainably, and simply, it kind of has to be in a fairly remote location. Designing it for social interaction can solve that problem. I like introverts, I'm married to one, but most people want social interaction.

John - I totally get it. I was just amused at how different our perceptions were. Communities magazine is a good place to find, well, community. Some are eco-villages, some are in more urban areas. But it's an interesting magazine even if you never join one.
