I'd be very interested in hearing more about how you've set up your co-housing situation. Although I'm very interested in the ideas behind co-housing, most of the examples that I've heard of seem to involve people buying up large parcels of land out in the suburbs and creating new developments out of whole cloth. This bugs me because it seems to me that the best place for co-housing is *in* the city, but there you're better off making the best use you can of existing structures than building new ones. You also have to deal with the issues of fitting your co-housing community into the already existing neighborhood community. It sounds like your approach is a lot closer to the sort of situation that I'd want to build. If you could post more details about how you've gone about building your community, I'd really appreciate it. --DaveH "Be Excellent to each other!"
