Housing in this country has become a commodity item dominated by players who know how to quickly and cheaply deliver product. It may not be 100% of what you wanted but doing it yourself will cost more. Perhaps groups should spend less time looking for sites and simply hook up with a small developer. Find someone doing a development close to what you want and then buy into it. You can offer a developer a 100 % presold complex if he can design it to accomomdate co-housing. John Eaton
