By sharing a wall (and some infrastructure) you can get some energy and construction cost savings with little loss of privacy or light. * Want cheap land in cities? Buy a crappy house on the biggest corner lot you can find (located where you want it)--knock down the house and do a zero lot line, in-fill cohousing neighborhood. Voila! Contact Claude Miquelle at Claude Miquelle and Associates in Boston if you want the "expert" on this notion. But check out the zoning first; certainly eastern Massachusetts is chock full of towns that won't let you do this without a variance. -- Jerry Callen jcallen [at] world.std.com "The best lack conviction, given some time to think, and the worst are full of passion without mercy." -- Joni Mitchell
