As others have said, I also feel that Cohousing is a function of the social web and not of the buildings, which can only contribute to the creation of community, not do it themselves. So manufactured housing, or any type of construction, would not be any advantage or disadvantage. That having been said, I feel that manufactured housing is great. Is has a bad reputation (which of course, is one reason I like it so much) so almost nobody considers it. If you think about it, there are few reasons why houses should be constructed little piece by itsy little piece by barely trained people working under unpredictable conditions. Cars and virtually everything else are built by people trained in their particular jobs, using special tools, in replicable conditions, 52 weeks per year, and then delivered to the owner. It makes total sense housing should be done the same way. At least housing as its currently being built. The vast majority of stick built houses are basically mass produced anyway, just on-site under less than ideal conditions. An earth based construction method does makes sense to be done custom-style, on-site. Call the National Manufactured Housing Association. Although you may not know it, there are many dealers where you live selling these houses; call them up!
