Good morning! I am an architecture major at Wellesley College, and am trying to write a paper about CoHousing for a seminar. While I have *the Book* about CoHousing and all the wonderful stuff that's been done in Europe, most of it seems like hype. What I would like is to hear from those of you who are either living in a CoHousing situation, or are currently setting up such a group (anywhere in the US, Canada or Mexico is fine) or those of you who are comtemplating it, but haven't laid your money down yet. What I am looking for is: * Architectural styles: what are you trying to build? --Materials you have chosen --Type of site you have selected --any problems you may have encountered with Architects vis a vis design, deadlines, etc. --any problems you may have encountered with zoning * How have you chosen the Architect? --Selection criteria * Group compatibility --How many members do you have or propose to have? --What are the age ranges? --Have steps been taken to insure that children and elderly will be comfortable in this environment? --What are the professions of group members? * (If you are currently living in CoHousing) Has the commitment to the group altered your lifestyle beyond your expectations? * (If you are involved in setting up a group) At what stage are you, and are things moving as you expected? * (If you are contemplating joining a group) What interests you about CoHousing? What do you see that holds advantages for you? What do you perceive as disadvantages? * If you have any other thoughts about CoHousing, or know of anyone or group I should contact, electronically or in person. ************* All replies will be confidential; I will keep any correspondence off-line. My time-frame is to have this research completed by November 21st. and the paper finished by Dec.9. I appreciate any feedback you are able to give me. I personally would like to see CoHousing boosted. One way to do it is to introduce it to the Academics. =-) If everyone is agreeable, I would be willing to send my results to this list. Thanks for your help! -- Alice LaPierre
