>From the Puget Sound Cohousing Network Brochure:

Cohousing is a neighborhood that is designed and built by the people 
who intend to live there.   The process of working together 
cooperatively to make decisions  creates a close community of neighbors.

Cohousing developments vary in size and design and are not based on any 
ideology other than working together.  Residents organize and equally 
participate in the planning and design of their homes and neighborhood. 
 Often a dinner club is shared several nights a week where residents 
work as teams to cook one night, then just come to community dinner the 
rest of the time.  Meetings and meals are held in a central common 
building called a commonhouse, which can also house other shared 
neighborhood functions such as day care, a library or laundry.  
Cohousers work together for the benefit of the neighborhood   and know 
each other well, creating a secure environment for children and adults alike.

Total both paragraphs  147 words.  Of course there is more, but that is 
the basics.
