The first house in what is planned to be a "Life Extension Village" between Brisbane St and Saje Court (across the road from Cowra Hospital) will be finished in the next month.
The almost-finished nine tonne house was craned onto its gantry four metres above the ground on Monday, June 19.
The LEV plans to attract visitors who want to get away from the "Rat Race" for a few days and have a retreat where they can relax and recharge their batteries - including visiting some of Cowra's scenic and cultural heritages.
Philip Rhoades the organiser of the “Life Extension Village” said the village was an excellent way for people to get together, improve their health and meet people who are interested in doing the same thing.
“I want to create a community of people attracted to the village who are interested in health and longevity - and support the running of a variety of local health-related activities,” he said.
Some of the activities on offer are yoga and Tai Chi classes, meditation, gardening, walking, star gazing, science and medical lectures.
